The SDG Prospector relies on a new generation of artificial intelligence models. In contrast with approaches using keyword counting, language models interpret words depending on the context from which they originate, and this allow to better understand the complexity of a text.

How to analyze several documents?
Two options in that case: you may analyze each document separately, extract its results under an excel sheet, and then aggregate all figures to get global results. You may also contact us directly to explore the possibility of customized results.
Would the result be different if I only tested one SDG?
No, it would be exactly the same. Each SDG is analyzed according to its own dedicated semantic universe.
Why is SDG 17 not included in the analysis?
SDG 17 refers to partnership for the realization of the 16 other objectives. It is therefore very different in essence. However, you may incorporate it in your analysis through a dedicated button on the screen.
