Deep Learning consortium to advance next-generation Environmental, Social, Governance systems.
Toronto, Canada: FCBH Inc. is to be the data broker spearheading a new A.I. Alliance to advance the next-generation of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) management systems that leverage artificial intelligence.
The goal of the Alliance is to pool resources and data for more effective training and development of machine learning (Deep Learning) that can identify risks to mitigate and opportunities for positive impact.
A wider capture of ESG data will allow for greater accuracy and reduce over-fitting (when analysis corresponds too closely or exactly to a particular set of data and may therefore fail to fit additional or predict future observations).
As each industry has its own unique set of ESG challenges and context, the Alliance will consist of separate consortia for each sector, allowing machine learning to take place under tailored industry frameworks, reducing algorithmic entropy.
The first ESG consortium in the A.I. Alliance of 2020 will be consist of early adopters in the mining sector, a high impact industry with its own ESG challenges that can gain significantly from reduction and mitigation of risks.
Technology partners of the Alliance include FCBH Inc., WhiteBox Patform, Sipher, York University (ADERSIM), and IBM Canada.
Open Source technology include Google's TensorFlow, and Apache Spark, among others.
