Feedback form is now closed.
Interested in using your data skills to give back? Delta Analytics, a Bay Area non-profit, is community of 90+ data scientists, economists, analysts, and software engineers seeking to leverage their data skills to bring about positive change for social good. Delta fellows working with two grant recipients, Open Media Foundation (OMF) and Career Village, utilize natural language processing to solve a similar problem in text classification, however, employing different techniques due to labeled/unlabeled data.

In this talk, we will contrast the approaches used for our work with OMF and Career Village, discuss the Delta Analytics fellowship and partnership process, and describe our newest venture, free machine learning education to build technical capacity in communities around the world.
