*Summary:   *Over the past year, USAID and Humanity United have jointly
administered the Tech Challenge for Atrocity Prevention, a prize contest
that sought innovative ideas for applying technology to five specific
issues related to atrocity prevention. Discrete problems focused on by the
Tech Challenge included: how to identify and spotlight intentional or
unintentional "third party enablers" of atrocities; how to better model or
forecast the likelihood of atrocity events; how to safely document and
transmit evidence of atrocities; how to enable secure communication among
and between at-risk communities; and how to better obtain and verify
information in hard-to-access areas. The Tech Challenge utilized three
different solver platforms (OpenIDEO, InnoCentive and TopCoder) to conduct
each of the separate component challenges. Four of the five component
challenges were ideation challenges, meaning they solicited ideas rather
than prototypes, while one of the challenges sought and tested algorithms.
External judges selected the winners for all of the contests. Cash prizes
were disbursed to the winners of four of the five challenges via the
platforms, usually for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, while the fifth
challenge's platform advised against monetary awards for winners. The
United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is launching a
"Seed Grants Program" to provide support for implementation of innovative
technology applications for broader atrocity prevention or response efforts.
