limitations on our data aggregation, classification and analysis

Is your AI-based data aggregation and classification 100% accurate?

At this point, we are at 85% accuracy and we expect to continuously improve over time. Our approach is AI-assisted rather than AI-replaced. That means we aim at serving the needs of human experts but have complemented our experience with a private Wiki experience for our Challenges and Solutions to enable experts to augment, correct, and refine our content. For the automated labeling of data, such as classification under one or many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we conduct human audits to refine the machine learning process.

Why are you making the access to this data intelligence FREE? How do you generate money?

Many niche services charge subscription fees for access to datasets such as private foundations activity, grants, private investment activity, compensation, and more. Private Beta users encouraged us to charge a subscription.

Given COVID-19 and the urgent social needs we face, we decided to provide free access. We generate revenues via listing services, sponsorships, and licensing core technology components such as the AI-based UN SDG classifier.

We believe in the Democratization of Access to Data and on the Power of collective impact. Read more here.
