The Second Annual Georgia Tech Data Science for Social Good (DS4SG) Workshop will be held virtually on November 5-6, 2020. The workshop will focus on the application of data science techniques to problems of significant societal impact, such as healthcare, data privacy, renewable energy, and transportation. Bringing together disciplines in Computer Science, Industrial and Systems Engineering and Public Policy, it will include research domains such as algorithmic fairness, mechanism design, artificial intelligence, simulation, machine learning and optimization. The schedule is designed for attendees to form meaningful connections, including 2 minute lightning talks as an icebreaker, and breakout sessions separated by academic stage (for mentoring) and research area (for technical discussions).
Who Should Attend
Advanced undergraduates or recent graduates considering graduate school in data science and related fields, including (but not limited to) computer science, economics, operations research, statistics, math, psychology, and public policy. Students with backgrounds that are underrepresented or underserved in data science and related fields are especially encouraged to apply.
