Mitch Goist attends 2017 Data Science for Social Good

The University of Washington eScience Institute, in collaboration with Urban@UW and Microsoft, held its 2017 Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) summer program.

The program brings together data and domain scientists to work on focused, collaborative projects that are designed to impact public policy for societal benefit. Modeled after similar programs at the University of Chicago and Georgia Tech, with elements from our own Data Science Incubator, sixteen DSSG Student Fellows will be selected to work with academic researchers, data scientists, and public stakeholder groups on data-intensive research projects.This year’s projects will had an applied social good dimension and broadly address questions related to social science, human services, public policy, criminal justice, environmental impacts, and urban informatics.
