Reimagining AI to connect science and policy

We’re using AI to answer our most challenging policy questions

The breadth and depth of human research is now so great we need new tools to find it, make sense of it, and get it to the people who can use it.

When we use AI to intelligently search for evidence across an ever-expanding landscape of scientific research, we are able to connect policy to scientific insight.

We can enrich our answers to vital questions—which populations are most impacted by food security, climate change, and gender discrimination?

We can connect approaches across different fields to the same issues and problems. 

We combine AI and Machine Learning with proven, transparent methods of scientific evaluation to deliver high-impact summaries and reports. 

We help decision-makers quickly access and make sense of the best available evidence for policy on issues of critical global concern.
