This LA Open Data meetup group is devoted to make open data useful. It is a meet-up group bringing together people from data science, civic services, and computing in the greater Los Angeles area.
The goal of the group is to utilize big data technologies to improve the analytics of open data for social good, and to promote civic engagement. We plan to run workshops on big data analytics that can be applied to model and visualize open data, for its leading to useful insights for public management. Also, we will organize special meetings to discuss special open data projects.
