Recently Stumbed at Premise after listening to Joe Reisinger, Co-founder and CTO of Premise talk at Quantcon 2015. Premise is a collection of large-scale geospatial, economic and human development data – data which form critical inputs for businesses, investors, policy-makers, regulators and strategists looking to get a timely and accurate read for what’s happening right now on the ground.
Premise leverages Mobile technology to collect such Economic dataset across various countries. People networked with Premise take photos of Microdata points with their native Android app and later that data gets aggregated from various locations and Economic index it built on top of it. And these updates happens in routine every 4 hours or a day which makes those dataset to act as realtime economic dataset.
Premise believes the new frontier of mobile technology is the conduit for the future of business and economics, and the role of alternative economic data as it relates to collection of official government statistics.
