Session 3: Data-Driven Accountability in Lobbying & Influence: Harnessing Innovations in AI and Analytics

Mar 26, 2024 | 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Plenary Room - CC1


Publishing data on lobbying and influence for the sake of transparency is critical, but the promise of data does not stop there. Combined with analytics and AI, data has the power to transform how accountability bodies do their work, such as verifying registrations, monitoring compliance with regulations and conducting investigations. Still, extracting, leveraging and communicating meaningful insights from the immense volume of data collected on lobbyists seems like a Herculean task for many governments. This session aims to suggest a way out from under all that data. Drawing from real-world examples in government, industry, and academia, this session will explore the opportunities and challenges—legal, strategic and technical—that governments face to effectively harness data for promoting greater accountability in lobbying and influence.
