Hackathon on artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to support firearm-related research


AMSTERDAM—Data experts from FD Mediagroep and the Small Arms Survey will hold a hackathon in Amsterdam from 6 to 7 September 2019.

Data on firearms and the impact of their misuse is scattered across the globe. Still, the amount of data online that can potentially be incorporated into scientific and policy-relevant knowledge is too vast to process efficiently by human agents only. Exploring artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, this hackathon aims to improve ways in which to scrape and better process large amounts of data from various sources in order to gain a better understanding of illicit arms flows as well as firearms misuse—including armed violence and gendered dynamics.

The hackathon—supported by Google Cloud Platform—will be carried out in the form of a closed expert workshop and will focus on Smart Image recognition, data exploration, Smart Crawling and information retrieval aided by machine learning.
