What if we could use satellite imagery to automatically detect illegal mining from afar or use anomaly detection to flag contracts that differ from standard ones and may include potentially unfair or questionable language? Until now, the dominant use of data in the extractives industry has been reserved for descriptive and summary analytics, but new opportunities to leverage more advanced techniques like machine learning and artificial intelligence are just emerging thanks to the groundwork laid by Omidyar Network investees and others.
During our quarterly Learning Out Loud webinars, we’ll share insights uncovered on projects currently underway with Omidyar Network investees to leverage data science in the fight against corruption in the extractives industry.
Learning Out Loud Webinar #1
Get caught up on our first webinar above, then join us for our second in October where we’ll be sharing our learnings exploring datasets and prototyping data science solutions aimed at improving transparency in the extractives industry.
