Introduce Peace Intelligence (PI) as a parallel to business intelligence (BI), leveraging the best BI software, algorithms, and teams to integrate data from disparate sources and present in real time in visualized dashboards (e.g. www.domo.com), building a self-sustaining Peace Intelligence Cycle. The software API is designed around the water cycle, with data inputs as "Rays", big data algorithms and storage on the "Cloud" and visualizations and data reductions as "Drops." We introduce the Chief Peace Officer (CPO) in this framework as the critical decision-maker using the data to understand and direct response analogous to business CXOs.
Rays represent a packaged source of data and could include many existing sources as well as new ideas (e.g. Raise a Red Flag, Stop Mass Sexual Violence, WINS). Rays are much more flexible and less limited than tweets, and can include any kind of digital data sources as has evolved in the latest BI software offerings / infrastructures.
Rays are collected in the Cloud (yes, The Cloud) where they are stored in preparation for requests from CPO's. This is where the BI software and algorithms run on the data.
Drops represent the condensation of the data into high impact, relevant visualizations and data reductions. Drops can be assembled into customized dashboards for use by CPO's in understanding and decision-making.
Chief Peace Officers have access privileges to the system. We introduce this concept as a parallel to the CXO in business and because controlling access to the assembled data may be important for security and safety. CPO's may also be the source of Rays in some cases. As users, consumers, decision makes, visionaries, CPOs query the system for information of interest to them. They set up their "dashboard" in a customized way that is optimal for the type of information they need to make their decisions / get their information.
Our concept is based on leveraging the current momentum, massive scale data management (input, manipulation, visualization, analysis) and huge market associated with the BI industry. We need to leverage this technology, used by the biggest companies in the world to maximize profitability, to prevent mass violence against civilians with the ultimate, audacious goal of world peace.
