Data Science for Social Good

April 5, 2019

How can we use data science to make the world a better place? On Wednesday 27 March, Amsterdam Data Science and Qualogy hosted our first ever Data Science for Social Good Meetup. Speakers from Gemeente Rotterdam, Neurodiversity Foundation and DSW Zorgverzekeraar showcased their work on machine learning, data science and big data with a social impact.

Inspiring talks
Joël Koppe and Lisa Doove (DSW Zorgverzekeraar) talked about fraud detection and the possibility to change behaviour. Eric Becker and Sjoerd Braaksma (Gemeente Rotterdam) talked about smart traffic models in Rotterdam used to increase the safety of its citizens. Tjerk Feitsma and Omotola Bolarin (Neurodiversity Foundation) presented Mini.AI: a neurodiverse translator built to create an inclusive society.

Discussion, pitches and drinks
After the talks, participants and speakers got together to discuss theses in roundtable discussions. During the conclusion pitches, some great insights were shared. And of course there was time afterwards for networking and drinks.
