Last Week while researching for a survey I am running on my blog, I came across DataKind. They apply Data science for solving problems of mission-driven organizations. According to them ‘From poverty alleviation to healthcare access to improved education, data science has the potential to move the needle on seemingly insurmountable issues, but only if there is close collaboration between data science and social sector experts.’
I contacted their head office in New York and was directed to their India Chapter in Bangalore. In this Hangout, I chat with Vinod Chandrashekar, Head of their India Chapter. I asked him about how they work with Social sector, interesting projects in India and their vision for India. Take a listen.
