1Concern was created to help save every possible life in a natural disaster
with the best combination of human and machine intelligence.

Our products are designed to empower emergency response teams
before, during and after a natural disaster.

This is the story

Although Stanford engineering student Ahmad Wani survived being marooned with his family during the catastrophic flood of 2014 in Kashmir, India, he spent seven days wondering whether he would live or die before they were rescued. That was when he decided to dedicate his studies to creating a next-generation disaster response platform designed to save every single life possible in a natural disaster.

Ahmad met computer scientist Nicole Hu and earthquake expert Tim Frank, and together they channeled their collective passion into figuring out how to apply data science and machine learning to aid disaster response. Their award-winning research project turned into 1Concern.
