IITBRP Symposium on "Data for Good"
IITB Research Park in association with Facebook is organizing a Symposium on "Data for Good" (a Facebook initiative). This initiative aims to bring together leading academicians, researchers, and development organizations to discuss the evolving role of data in solving social challenges.
When data is shared responsibly with the groups that need it, it improves how non-profits do their work, how researchers learn, and how policies are developed. Facebook collaborates with independent research institutions to facilitate research on topics related to Data for Good products, investigating how social ties influence evacuation behaviour or the challenges and opportunities women face when starting small businesses.
For more details about the Facebook initiative, the tools, and the data can be found here: https://dataforgood.fb.com/
The event will be held in VMCC Seminar Hall 12
Date: 23rd July 2019.
Time: 3:15 PM onwards
