Rob Baker

Harvard Humanitarian Initiative
Director, Signal Program
Cambridge, MA, USA
My professional focus in effective innovation campaigns within larger institutions and the role of emerging technologies for humanitarian response and international development. Particular focuses are on components of AI (i.e., deep learning, machine learning, predictive modeling), blockchain, and UAV. Prior to joining Harvard, I worked at the World Bank, USAID, White House, and Ushahidi, so happy to talk through making innovation work within larger bureaucracies or just getting a beer and sharing horror stories about navigating massive institutional policies.
