The UK 2020 Data Science for Social Good Summer projects programme (DSSGx) features nine inspiring researchers from around the world, tackling two real world projects to create data science solutions for a better world. Due to COVID-19, the full-time three month placement is taking place remotely.

About the event

The DSSGx Summer projects closing ceremony on Thursday 3 September will celebrate the exceptional work of this year's nine talented data scientists, and feature insightful, short presentations on the challenges provided by our non-profit partners, Ofsted and The World Bank.

The challenges are as follows:

  • Ofsted: Risk Assessing Early Years Child Care Providers
  • The World Bank: Identifying and Analysing Corruption Risks in Public Administration

As this event is completely remote, we have a rare opportunity to share it online with anyone who has an interest in this work. All are welcome. 

DSSGx began on 15 June and will run until 5 September. It is an affiliate programme of the DSSG Foundation’s core summer fellowship in the US at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), USA. It is led by the Turing, in partnership with the University of Warwick. 

Following the closing ceremony, there will be the chance to join an informal facilitated panel discussion with each of our 2020 groups. Please indicate when registering if you wish to join. Feel free to bring a drink, and be ready to engage!
