A research brief which explores the key data sources, algorithmic techniques and roadblocks in applying remote sensing techniques for development.
A white paper exploring how bias in algorithms and data affect development problems, especially when they interact with socio-legal systems
A research paper exploring an alternative approach to address the concern of privacy in sharing big data datasets by generating privacy-preserving artificial call detail records (CDRs) in accordance with the desired macro features of the dataset.
A whitepaper outlining the development of an alternative socioeconomic index for Sri Lanka, using principal component analysis (PCA) and publicly available census data
An extended research abstract which identifies several criteria that can be used to identify mobile network call detail records (CDRs) affected by load sharing and establishes why that is a prevalent issue, especially in urban areas.
