Description of Synapse Be prepared for disaster with Synapse. Synapse is a mobile crowdsourcing application that takes in user generated information about the disaster, verifies the data, and then shares useful, accurate information with our users. We do all of this in a low data way – so that requests can get through in a disaster, even when connection is spotty or limited.We collect a vast array of first-hand data from disaster victims to build an accurate real-time picture of the status on the ground. A major concern in disaster scenarios is misinformation. Our platform verifies our crowdsourced data to improve outcomes using statistical models. Once the crowdsourced information has been verified, vital data is made accessible to disaster victims.
