Using biG DATa to discover student behavior Patterns causing school violence.
We employ technologies Netflix, Amazon, General Electric, Starbucks, Sprint, Apple, and IBM use but focus them on helping keep school children safe. If data can tell the CDC where the next epidemic might be, why can't we use the same tools to reduce school violence? We're different because we treat school violence proactively. We analyze it as an epidemic and public health problem.
Our non-profit will provide free web-based tools to parents, teachers, counselors, therapists, students, authorities, communities, and government education analysts decrease bullying, fighting, drug use, sexual harassment, vandalism, gang activities, stealing, and weapons use. Our research will also help schools design and implement proactive intervention programs the can be freely shared with thousands of other schools in our network.
We are the only national initiative to combine behavioral research with the latest big data science tools to identify the root causes of school violence. We do it in a new way. We translate biological, criminal, social, cultural, psychological, gender, and behavioral data into insights so that parents, therapists and educators can help 800,000 annual school violence events.
