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. Each project has a learning team made up of data scientists and subject matter experts that will share take-aways and surface recommendations applicable to industry practitioners in an age of improving transparency and data availability.
We encourage all interested parties to come learn and ask your questions.
