Nature and Context

Bringing together academic researchers, stakeholders, and professional data scientists to address critical challenges facing cities - poverty, inequality, safety, health, housing, and efficient use of resources - can help communities transition to this new age of data. Providing education on how to best harness the power of data science will be crucial in implementing sustainability in these growing and changing cities where there is a need for relevant, practical, and rigorous training in data science.
