Strata+Hadoop London: Machine Learning for Human Rights Advocacy

June 3, 2016 @ 10:20 am - 10:40 am

The same machine-learning methods used to learn about customers, improve speech recognition, and identify cat faces can also be applied to questions about conflict violence. Megan Price demonstrates how machine-learning methods help us determine what we know, and what we don’t, about the ongoing conflict in Syria. Megan then explains why these methods can be crucial to better understand patterns of violence, enabling better policy decisions, resource allocation, and ultimately, accountability and justice.
