Helping NGOs, NPOs and other organizations address the most challenging social missions by providing public web data gathering infrastructure, tech, and legal advisory.
Funding and advising academic researchers aiming to tackle large scale public web data and positive-change-driven projects.
Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan
Data scientists often find themselves scraping data and are hopeful no one asks too many questions. The partnership with Oxylabs has allowed us to root the discussion of what actions are appropriate in the legal precedents formed over the last twenty years. Instead of avoiding the topic as taboo, we can address it head on in the context of our curriculum.
Director of Digital Services Department at Communications Regulatory Authority of Lithuania
With the help of Oxylabs created AI driven image recognition systems, now we can identify illegal content even if it was modified in order to overcome classic detection systems, which use fingerprints of already known images.
Our mission is to enable critical research questions and missions at the scale of global public web data by providing know-how, public web data gathering infrastructure and resources pro bono. 4β will allow researchers and academics to maximize their research impact, enhance understanding of critical public web data and enter a new age of data acquisition.
