ILDA is a Latin American research organization based in Uruguay that promotes ethical uses of data to address public policy issues. Current projects include Empatia, a partnership with Latam Digital Center that investigates the use of AI to solve public problems; the regional standardization of femicide data; a Latin America and Caribbean edition of the Open Data Barometer; the Abrelatam+Condatos forum for civic tech; and developing the next generation of data researchers. I asked ILDA some questions to learn more about their connections with the original Open Data Barometer, past and present; ILDA’s role as one of GDB’s founding research hubs; and what it means to be a host organization for a research startup.
