Using computational science & AI to end modern slavery

Conference | 19 - 20 February | New York


Code 8.7 is being organized by Delta 8.7 (a project of UN University Centre for Policy Research), The Alan Turing Institute, Computing Community Consortium, Tech Against Trafficking, the Rights Lab and the Global Security Initiative at Arizona State University. 

Code 8.7 will bring the computational research and artificial intelligence (AI) communities together with those working to achieve Target 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals. With Target 8.7, 193 countries agreed to take immediate and effective measures to end forced labour, modern slavery and human trafficking by 2030, and child labour by 2025. Computational science, AI and machine learning can accelerate our understanding of these problems and help us determine “effective measures” to address them.
