On the latest episode of the #FutureofData podcast Drew Conway and podcast host Vishal Kumar discuss the hot topic of socially responsive data science practices. Drew is also a co-founder of DataKind, a global non-profit network of pro bono data scientists.
“One of the hardest things about doing data science is actually finding an interesting problem and then answering it.” — Drew Conway
This premise helped fuel the idea that eventually became DataKind, which started with a single event and is now a worldwide organization with chapters all over the globe. Organizations like DataKind helps spur a global movement of data science organizations dedicated to advancing the greater social good.
