Eliminating Poverty in Edmonton

endpovertyACE provided analytical support and assistance to the Information and Research Round Table (IRRT) from the Mayor’s Task Force to Eliminate Poverty in Edmonton.

The End Poverty Task Force generated 70 Recommendations with over 400 associated actions in their End Poverty Edmonton Recommendation document. To assist the Task Force in making sense of this lengthy document, ACE worked with the Insight Community team to develop a survey aimed at having the Task Force members evaluate each recommendation. ACE also analyzed the document using detailed Natural Language Processing (NLP) aimed at extracting concepts, entities, keywords and taxonomies from the recommendation text descriptions.

ACE’s analysis uncovered previously unknown patterns in the document such as similarities between recommendations and trends based on key themes.
