Picture a gathering of brilliant minds, all driven by the common goal of using data science to make the world a better place…🌈 🦄
– does that sound real to you?
We are excited to share that the Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) hands-on summer program, an exceptional 2-month full-time program has been launched in August, led by Frauke Kreuter and Bernd Bischl of the Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML).
Many public mission-driven organizations, like educational institutions and NGOs, lag in data science adoption due to factors like limited funds or expertise. DSSG is working to change that!
Aspiring data science talents are joining forces and weaving together their expertise on projects that positively impact society.
Chosen teams will focus on:
➤ Developing a Fire Hydrant Range-Finder Web App to assist the disaster control (“Katastrophenschutz”) in Munich.
➤ Creating and analyzing a land sealing dataset to enhance climate change understanding.
