Data Science for Sustainability
I co-organize a series of monthly seminars on the application of data science to issues of sustainability. Our speakers address questions such as:
what data feeds can improve supply chain sustainability?
how can fault detectors be applied to agricultural water conservation?
in what ways can building energy efficiency be automated?
how can cell-phone data inform transport planning?
Amongst our membership are product managers, investors, engineers, founders and, of course, data scientists. We book speakers who can describe both the broad challenges and the technical details. We meet the first week of every month and have over 2500 members.
I co-founded the group in 2013 with Adam Rein (of Mission Point Capital) to fill a gap in the Silicon Valley scene.
