The week before the Chicago: City of Big Data panel, fifty students from Chicago high schools came to the Computation Institute for a crash course on the potential of data to make the world a better place. With help from alumni of the Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship, the students learned about the open data released by the City of Chicago and how it can be used to understand and address problems in their own neighborhoods.
