Sense, Predict, Act


PSI aims to improve the lives of millions of people around the world by dramatically enhancing the decision-making capabilities of those charged with addressing the major challenges of food, water and energy security as well as managing risks associated with increasing impact and frequency of weather extremes.

As the pressures and demands on a wide range of scarce resources intensify, decisions to mitigate impacts in one area often have unforeseen and adverse effects in another: a result arising from incomplete information and partial awareness.

To address these disconnects and gaps, PSI creates a ‘platform of platforms’ for collaboration and sharing, deploying advanced sensing and data gathering, modeling, and analytical technologies and tools. In doing so we aim to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas and solutions, sharing insights and approaches across different domains and bringing down the walls surrounding different disciplinary silos.
