Artificial Intelligence Against Modern Slavery report explores challenges and opportunities of using AI to combat modern slavery in global supply chains

“AI Against Modern Slavery. Digital insights into modern slavery reporting – challenges and opportunities”, May 2021

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.
