This lab focuses on the intersection of data science and human services (formerly big data and human services). It brings together academics, city and county practitioners, and non-profits to consider technology and analytics solutions to most effectively deploy human services. This Lab kicked off workshop on January 17th and 18th in Seattle supported by the City of Seattle and the University of Washington. Coming out of the workshop, MetroLab will be working on developing focus areas and projects related to the conversations and work presented. More information on this ongoing effort will be available in Summer 2017. Please contact us if you would like to be involved.
