Data Science for Good
What's the difference between a commercial data science project and a Data Science project for social benefit? Often so-called Data Science for Good projects involve a throwing together of many people from different backgrounds under a common motivation to have a positive effect.
We talk to a Data Science team that was formed to tackle the unemployment crisis that is coming out of the pandemic and help people to find excellent jobs in different industries for which they have a good skills match.
We interview Erika Gravina, Rajwinder Bhatoe and Dehaja Senanayake about their story helping to create the Job Finder Machine with the Emergent Alliance, DataSparQ, Reed and Google.
- Project: Job Finder Machine
- Project Group: Emergent Alliance and DataSparQ
- Shout out: Code First Girls for fantastic courses, mentoring and support for women in tech and data science
