If it's summer, it's time to hear about what the Data Science for Social Good fellows have been up to! Data Science for Social good is a program to train aspiring data scientists to work on data mining, machine learning, big data, and data science projects with social impact.
Working closely with governments and nonprofits, fellows take on real-world problems in education, health, energy, public safety, transportation, economic development, international development, and more.
For three months, fellows from around the globe descend on Chicago where they learn, hone, and apply their data science, analytical, and coding skills, collaborate in a fast-paced atmosphere, and learn from mentors coming from industry and academia.
Last year's fellows wowed us with their projects. Let's see what they've got this year!
