What our partners are saying

Public web data is an invaluable source of information as to the scale and location of infringement on the Internet. We are most grateful that The Bright Initiative's contribution has enhanced WIPO ALERT, a voluntary program which promotes online safety by helping advertisers avoid misplacement of ads on suspected illicit websites.

Thomas Dillon, Legal Counsellor, WIPO

I'd like to thank you for the session on ethical considerations surrounding bots and data. It challenged me to be inquisitive about the data sector and help me bridge my understanding of the social sciences.
