Helping farmers and communities to address the impact of natural catastrophes
What it does
Our application uses data from the IBM cloud along with machine learning algorithms to predict risks for farmers. This mobile application provides alerts and actionable tips to farmers, so that they can take action to mitigate risks before - or to get assistance easily and quickly after a disaster. The farmers can use the application to chat with other farmers in the community and interact with a friendly chatbot. The whole ecosystem consisting of local governments, experts, insurance companies and farmers is connected through the app. These actors share their actions on the blockchain for a transparent exchange of information and use of finances.
