How do we enable data-driven approaches in institutions devoted to social good?
How can we provide training for data-scientists interested in social good?
A ten-week internship program matching student DSSG fellows with project leads from organizations in the Seattle region devoted to social good, for intense joint work focused on providing a specific data-driven solution.
4 projects (with project leads)
of 11 applications
17 DSSG Fellows
of 144 applications
6 High School students (ALVA program)
The eScience infrastructure
Peer instruction and collaboration
Socrata crime incidence data
Data from social networks (facebook, twitter, etc.)
It is possible to both:
Stakeholder involvement is important
(no projects "thrown over the fence")
In-house expertise (data scientists, program managers) are an important asset
But (hypothesis) DSSG can be translated into other settings
