    What We Are

    One Concern's product allows you to:
    - Predict and react to the impacts of natural disasters
    - Run realistic training scenarios and build collaborative plans to better prepare for emergencies
    - Conduct multi-hazard analysis of its critical intrastructure and deeply understand cascading impacts
    - Recover faster after an event by seeing the complex interdependencies of your ecosystem - like healthcare, power, food, shelter, and more - at a hyperlocal level

    Who We Are

    Our long-term vision is for planetary-scale resilience where everyone lives in a safe, sustainable and equitable world.

    CEO Ahmad Wani survived being marooned during the catastrophic Kashmir flood of 2014 for seven days wondering whether he would live or die. That was when he decided to dedicate himself to creating an AI-enabled platform designed to build long-term resilience.

    While at Stanford University, Ahmad met AI guru 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 natural disasters and climate change.

    At the end of every day, we feel like we are doing something significant to make the world a better place.
    We’re building a global disaster-intelligence platform with one concern in mind: saving lives. We’re using AI and machine learning to (1) create a robust, disaster-resilient cloud infrastructure, (2) create a real-time big data pipeline to inform disaster response and modeling, and (3) combine traditional hazard models with machine learning to provide clear pre-disaster insights, while capturing post-disaster data to continuously improve response and recovery.
