Data science can help identify trends & patterns that make proactive solutions available sooner. 


how data science can help government deliver better services

 Working with thousands of human service organizations worldwide, I see a crisis coming. Too many to serve. Not enough staff or funding. Running out of time. When you apply data science to a complex problem, it is possible to discover proactive solutions that deliver better results for less . TEDxUW  2016 gave me a chance to share this research and challenge the world.
