2018 • 3 years • Technology in the Public Interest

A project of Community Partners, the Human Rights Data Analysis Group (HRDAG) is a San Francisco-based nonprofit, non-partisan organization supporting the human rights community’s pursuit of justice and accountability through the production of rigorous scientific research that is used by advocates, policymakers and courts. The award provides flexible support for a line of work to HRDAG as the organization deepens its efforts to help advance artificial intelligence (AI) in the public interest, with a particular focus on machine learning, a subfield of AI. HRDAG will both examine how machine learning models can encode existing social biases and represent them as apparently objective computer calculations, and leverage machine learning to help advance justice and accountability. The organization undertakes work in a variety of countries and contexts ranging from the United States to Colombia, Syria, and Mexico. Central to HRDAG’s approach is working closely with partners – ranging from NGOs to international institutions – in order to help build their capacity on matters related to machine learning and other AI technologies.
