Here is a brief intro:

Using Data to Foster Wellbeing

Our next Net Tuesday will be in one week, February 3, in the Rufus Jones Room from 6:00pm – 8:30pm.  (Refreshments and networking, 6:00pm – 6:30pm.)  This is a free event, sponsored by the AFSC. 

Join us and take a deep dive into the principles and practices of using Big Data, Open Data, proprietary data, Philly data, U.S. Census Data, NSA data (oops, strike that), Federal Reserve Bank data,  geographic data and more.  

Despite the emphasis on data, the meeting will not be about the science of data.  Instead, we will focus on using data to make good decisions that can lead to beneficial outcomes for our society.  How to locate, understand, interpret and use data to identify trends and predict outcomes will frame our discussion.  This meeting will appeal to leaders and managers of civic and social enterprises ranging from block clubs to large organizations, and activists and entrepreneurs who want to understand how to use data to identify opportunities to create new jobs and new movements.

Note: The broadcast and the recording will be on YouTube. The link for the broadcast will get you back to the recording. We will be circulating the link soon after the event.
