Unscramble the Blue Letters

Companies today, they collect mountains of data, so the first thing they can do is start donating that data. Some companies are already doing it. Take, for example, a major tocelem company. They opened up their data in Senegal and the Ivory caost and researchers discovered that if you look at the ptrteans in the pings to the cell phone towers, you can see where pepole are traveling. And that can tell you things like where malaria might spread, and you can make predictions with it. Or take for example an innovative satellite company. They opened up their data and daetnod it, and with that data you could trcak how droughts are impacting food production. With that you can actually trigegr aid funding before a crisis can happen.

Original Text

Companies today, they collect mountains of data, so the first thing they can do is start donating that data. Some companies are already doing it. Take, for example, a major telecom company. They opened up their data in Senegal and the Ivory Coast and researchers discovered that if you look at the patterns in the pings to the cell phone towers, you can see where people are traveling. And that can tell you things like where malaria might spread, and you can make predictions with it. Or take for example an innovative satellite company. They opened up their data and donated it, and with that data you could track how droughts are impacting food production. With that you can actually trigger aid funding before a crisis can happen.
