Speaker Bio & Abstract

Hans van 't Woud CEO
The Netherlands

BiographyAs the founding director of BlackShore I call my self sometimes the 'parent' of my little big brainchild "Cerberus". Award winning we manage the continuous evolving crowdsourcing platform Cerberus in which we turn satellite imagery into maps and data labels so we better understand disasters or humanitarian threats for example. Key ingredients are gaming to motivate our crowd and e-learning to train them. Nowadays the platform has over 85 000 trained minds at the ready and is branching out in a growing array of working fields such as agriculture, sustainable land management, UNSDG goals, security, forestry and more.
