what is tech4pi?

Cloud technology powered by artificial intelligence has enhanced our lives in ways we never imagined possible. How can we leverage these technologies to maximize impact for millions of nonprofits and social organizations worldwide?

The answer is not as simple as creating one-size-fits-all solutions. For technology to address complex problems in society, it must be grounded in a deep understanding of human behavior, cultural differences, empathy, inclusion, and human connections.

Technology for Public Interest – #tech4pi, is a field dedicated to leveraging technology, data sciences, ethical AI and proven sustainability models to support public interest organizations in the delivery of their mission. In addition to advocacy efforts, Tech4PI includes policy and regulations improvements in creating technology to address urgent issues in society. Tech4PI encompasses important principles such as:

collective impact anchored in inclusion

these complex problems require the private sector, government, NPOs, and capital sources to work together

ethical ai transforming data into knowledge

transforming data into knowledge through ethical AI with a relentless focus on measurable impact at a systemic level

building lasting operational field capacity

building field capacity with sustainability models in place as technology alone does not solve problems; people do.

tech4pi is about making our ikigai the creation of sustainable technologies and business models to make the world a better place.
