Data Normalization & The Hague Peace Data Standard

In late March, co-director Mark Nelson was invited to speak at The Hague Tech in a seminar titled, “Data Normalization & The Hague Peace Data Standard.

Mark’s work focuses on designing, catalyzing, incentivizing, and generating resources to scale up collective positive human behavior change. He has described a functional, quantitative definition of peace, in terms of technology-mediated engagement episode quantity and quality across social difference lines; he has identified innovative, automated ways to measure peace, both at the neighborhood and global level; and he has developed a formal structural description for Peace Data.

Mark spent the evening presenting his research in the form of The Hague Peace Data Standard and how to build data and AI-driven systems for good.
