Digital Insights into Modern Slavery Reporting: Challenges and opportunities of machine readability
Artificial Intelligence offers a real opportunity to scale our efforts to eradicate modern slavery. One opportunity is the use of AI to ‘read’ the statements produced under mandatory reporting requirements, such as the UK and Australian Modern Slavery Acts, in order to improve transparency.
Reflecting the initial phase of the Artificial Intelligence Against Modern Slavery (AIMS) project, Walk Free, in collaboration with The Future Society, WikiRate, and the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre have published a paper on digital insights into modern slavery reporting, which discusses the challenges and opportunities of machine readability in this area.
See the Walk Free site for a summary of the key finding and recommendations.
