The potential value of data science to governments, nonprofits, advocacy groups, and political campaigns is enormous, but so are the challenges. Andrew Therriault has spent most of his career working on these problems, and he’ll share the lessons he’s learned from both successes and failures. Using examples from his own work and others’, Therriault will show how to find the best opportunities to apply data science to civic problems, and offer guidance for avoiding common mistakes along the way. He’ll also take a look at the “Data for Good” ecosystem as a whole and present a new model for collaboration between the public and private sectors, one that could help civic data science finally realize its full potential.
