EAIA 2018 - DS4BD

Advanced School on Data Science for Big Data

Scope: Data Science and Big Data are not only hot topics but also essencial to current society. Economy, health, agriculture, energy, media, education, industry, mobility, leasure and all other human activities rely more and more on the advanced processing of large quantities of data.

This proposal is based on our large experience as lecturers and as organizers of previous Summer Schools such as "Summer School On Data Sciences For Big Data - Resource Aware Data Mining" in Porto, associated to ECML PKDD 2015 (www.ecmlpkdd2015.org/summer-school).

11:00 - 13:00 Center for Data Science & Public Policy<\/a> and a Senior Fellow at the Harris School of Public Policy and the Computation Institute at the University of Chicago. Rayid is a reformed computer scientist and wanna-be social scientist, but mostly just wants to increase the use of large-scale AI\/ML\/DS\/data-related buzzword approaches in solving large public policy and social challenges. Among other areas, Rayid works with governments and non-profits in policy areas such as health, criminal justice, education, public safety, economic development, and urban infrastructure. Rayid is also passionate about teaching practical data science and started the Data Science for Social Good Fellowship<\/a> at UChicago that trains computer scientists, statisticians, and social scientists from around the world to work on data science problems with social impact."}]}' > DS for Social Good - Data Science for Social Good and Public Policy: Examples, Opportunities, and Challenges
