Datametrex Deploys Cyber Filtration Technology To Support USA Election Anti-Vote Suppression Effort
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 16, 2020) - Datametrex AI Limited (TSXV: DM) (FSE: D4G) (OTC PINK: DTMXF) (the "Company" or "Datametrex") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Nexalogy is playing a technology support role in the #SeeSay2020 campaign to fight voter intimidation in the upcoming USA election to be held on November 3rd, 2020.
"We are happy to be a supporting technology provider for Democracy Labs ("DemLabs") and SeeSay2020," says Marshall Gunter, CEO of the Company. "The 2020 U.S. election is likely to cost nearly $11 billion, making it by far the most expensive election in U.S. history, according to projections by a leading campaign finance watchdog. (source: https://www.voanews.com/2020-usa-votes/2020-us-election-cost-approaching-record-11-billion). Our AI driven mapping technology allows for cyber filtration to identify voter intimidation for elections related research."
Incidents of voter suppression and intimidation have to be highlighted quickly. How can this be done with so much activity in such a short period of time with disinformation filling the airwaves? A citizen reporting system that can quickly distill information and share it with groups best equipped to deal with that incident is needed. For this purpose DemLabs has aligned several leading technology partners, including Nexalogy to support the SeeSay2020 platform.
DemLabs has selected Nexalogy to collect data of incidents reported of voter suppression through Twitter. Nexalogy throughts its technology platform monitors tweets for keywords that DemLabs chose including "VOTER", "SUPPRESSION", "INTIMIDATION" and "LONG LINES". This allows the SeeSay2020 campaign to pay close attention (geofence) to tweets originating from certain counties and cities prone to voter suppression.
Working in conjunction with DemLabs and other technology partners See Something, Say Something was first deployed in the 2018 mid-terms along with Trust The Vote, NBC, Samantha Bee and Rock The Vote. It collected over 2,000 reports of voting issues which can still be seen on the SeeSay2020 dashboard. The data collected was shared with other groups for legal and analysis purposes.
