Direct Mobile Consumer Data Collection Tool

Chris Locke of Caribou Digital (UK) Ltd. in the United Kingdom will develop a small set of applications for smart phone users in developing countries to put them in control of providing anonymous data on their mobile phone use in near real-time to aid analysis and research by donors and governments. The applications will be able to record digital financial transactions and other phone-based activities such as content browsing to provide additional context and thereby enrich the data. They will develop the software for testing on a panel of users in Kenya, and collect and analyze the data.
