Code 8.7: Using Computational Science and AI to End Modern Slavery

Code 8.7 is a two-day conference that brings 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 the worst forms of 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. The featured image was made by Ira Gelb.
