On the latest episode of the #FutureofData podcast, Our CEO Drew Conway and podcast host Vishal Kumar discuss the hot topic of socially responsive data science practices. Besides being the Founder and CEO of Alluvium, Drew is also a co-founder of DataKind, a global non-profit network of pro bono data scientists.
“One of the hardest things about doing data science is actually finding an interesting problem and then answering it.” — Drew Conway
This premise helped fuel the idea that eventually became DataKind, which started with a single event and is now a worldwide organization with chapters all over the globe. Organizations like DataKind helps spur a global movement of data science organizations dedicated to advancing the greater social good.
