Practice and process

The “Data for Good” movement was born in the wake of the opportunities offered by data science applied to social development and, in general, to philanthropy. The pervasiveness of digital platforms, internet connectivity, social media, smartphones, and the swift advances in artificial intelligence are providing organisations with unprecedented capabilities to quantify information, reason based on data, inform decisions, and evaluate outcomes. However, there is a gap between the adoption of these methods by major commercial companies and the adoption of the same techniques in the non-profit, governmental and philanthropic sectors. The goal of this session is to foster the awareness necessary to start bridging this gap and to look into concrete ways that philanthropic organisations can make use of data science in their day-to-day activities.
