Using Data to Improve Equity
Abstract: In the midst of a pandemic and economic stress, governments have to make real-time decisions on maximizing safety and minimizing economic and personal impact. How can we use data, behavioral science, and our shared need for safety to create a more connected ecosystem where government, residents, and businesses share information in more intertwined ways. Getting access to that information, equitably, is a challenge throughout the world. In the City of Los Angeles, we use data-driven decisions to pave the way to connect all 4,000,000 residents with the information and services they need to thrive. Learn how Los Angeles is using data science and leading-edge technology to connect all of our communities, residents, and businesses.

The DS C2C seminar series, hosted jointly by six academic data science institutes, provides a unique opportunity to foster a broad-reaching data science community.
This fall, the series features important figures in data science, who will provide insight on the transformative use of data science in traditional research disciplines, future breakthroughs in data science research, data science entrepreneurship, and advocacy and national policies for a data-enabled and just society.
Speakers throughout the winter and spring will include faculty members and postdoctoral fellows at the six universities whose research spans the theory and methodology of data science, and their application in arts and humanities, engineering, biomedical, natural, physical and social sciences.
