Health Emergency Data Science
Humanitarian responders have access to ever more data in the operational sphere but are often unable to utilize it towards better decision-making. This project solicits real challenges facing leading humanitarian organizations & creates transdisciplinary data science design solutions.
In December 2018, the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research and the Lassonde School of Engineering hosted an invite-only workshop at York University. The event brought together participants from five key groups needed to solve complex humanitarian data science challenges: Humanitarian Field & Subject Matter Experts, Humanitarian Innovation Specialists, Data and Computer Science Researchers, Designers & Engineers, Data Ethicists & Governance Specialists.
