Harnessing the power of data science for public sector

/ Lecture
Governments are increasingly relying on an analysis of data (increasingly including text and images) to improve service provision for citizens in a variety of policy areas including education, criminal justice and health. This talk will survey trends within this use and explain what successful data-driven government might look like. We will first discuss applications of data, for instance, to plan services, evaluate policy and target government programs. Then we will move onto how these applications might be integrated into digital systems including dashboards and case management systems. Finally, we will discuss challenges around upskilling analytical units as well as legal and ethical challenges.
