Hey Data Do-Gooders!
The much-awaited event of DataKind Bangalore is here: DataDive!
A DataDive is a weekend-long, marathon-style event where teams of volunteers work together to help mission-driven, social change organizations by demonstrating what data can do for them. Ranging from data-visualization for better storytelling to applying machine learning algorithms for forecasting. We’re not only excited about the variety of problems we are addressing but most importantly for the amazing non-profits with whom we’re partnering - Daksh (http://dakshindia.org/), Open City (http://opencity.in/) & Pratham Books (http://prathambooks.org/ or https://storyweaver.org.in/).
Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome! No prior participation in previous DataJams is expected. We'll set the context for you to get up to speed and contribute to the participating organizations.
