The Institute for Smarter Government is challenging students at every college across Canada and human service organizations to participate in Canada’s first Opioid Summit One, a two day hackathon event October 26/ 27 focused on applying data science to help reduce opioid death in 3,200 communities across Canada using big data and prescriptive analytic solutions.
Based on research done with pubic domain data, predictive and prescriptive data science models will help minimize the impact and spread of opioids with improved evidence based policy decisions.
Demand for education, justice, health and social services are increasing faster than financial budgets can support. Transformational strategies with system level thinking make it possible to address complex issues for less.
It is possible to start with what you have to start making a difference today. X-machine TM analytics take complex problems and identify trends and patterns using data available to the public.
Predictive and prescriptive analytic models will enable any community to better identify trends, target interventions, monitor impacts and support evidence-based decisions.
Everyone can participate in helping to reduce the world's opioid pandemic. Find out how you can make a difference.
The Institute for Smarter Government provides government with an evidence based approach to the current opioid pandemic by working toward preventing the emergence of new crises and promoting the health and safety of citizens everywhere.
