OCCRP Aleph disambiguation

[OCCRP Aleph disambiguation]

To support journalists to uncover corruption and hold power to account, OCCRP develops Aleph. Aleph is an investigative data platform that searches and cross-references global databases with leaks to find evidence of corruption and trace criminal connections. The project will improve the way that Aleph connects data across different data sources and how it ranks recommendations and searches for reporters. Our goal is to establish a feedback loop where users train a machine learning system that will predict if results showing a person or company refer to the same person or company. If successful this means journalists can conduct more efficient research and investigations, finding key information more quickly and wasting less timetrawling through irrelevant documents and datasets.

Run by Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project
