Volunteer Online at the OSDG Community platform 2022

DESCRIPTION

Contribute to a citizen science project on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)!

OSDG (www.osdg.ai) project aims to classify science, technology, and public policy by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is composed by a free, fully open-source, and user-friendly tool that classifies text and publications into the different SDGs.

They have recently launched the OSDG Community Platform (www.osdg.ai/community), an ambitious attempt to bring together researchers, subject matter experts and SDG advocates from all around the world to create a large and accurate source of textual information on SDGs.

The Community volunteers use the Platform to participate in labelling exercises where they validate each text’s relevance to SDGs based on their background knowledge. In each exercise, the volunteer is shown a text together with an SDG label associated with it – this usually comes from the source – and asked to either accept or reject the suggested label.

Needed equipment: A computer with internet connection.
Duration: You can dedicate as much time as you want, even an hour each month is helpful.
They  will issue participation certificates for the most active volunteers.

The project is undertaken by a partnership between PPMI, UNDP SDG AI Lab, and a community of researchers led by Dr. Bautista-Puig.
