Join Gather for the world's first data dive for urban sanitation
Gather is hosting the world’s first data dive for urban sanitation and we are looking for data scientists to join us on 23rd and 24th March!
By 2020, three billion people will live in cities without access to proper sanitation. Gather has been given unique access to data sets from pioneering sanitation providers. We want to use this data to better understand how we can get toilets to people who need them in emerging cities across the world.
The event will kick-off with a keynote presentation from Lars Schoebitz and Q&A with Gather. Participants will break into small groups and spend the two days answering seven key questions and then discussing progress with the entire group.
The dive will be held in central London. Gather will reimburse all participants with the costs of travel, accommodation and lunch.
Gather are inviting individuals to join us who meet the following description:
Passionate about using data for good
Competency in programming languages such as R or Python
Skilled at creating algorithms and exploratory models to gain actionable insight from large data sets
Familiar with performing geospatial analysis
Comfortable communicating solutions and findings, and how they relate to a particular problem
Domain expertise in urban sanitation is not required, but is always welcome!
