Impact data and data science use through convenings, events, workshops, learning modules, articles, discussions etc, with evidence.
Forge partnerships to bring global expertise into India and vice versa, and lead the conversation on the adoption and use of data and data science in the Indian development sector, to drive scalable social change.
Data and disruptive technologies are essential enablers to achieve social impact at scale, with speed and efficiency. There have been several technological advancements in leveraging data to build powerful analytics, visualisations and AI/ML models in the for-profit sector. The social sector too would benefit from the use of data and data science, and by building capacities and partnerships to leverage this progress.
CDSSI will assist SPOs in this direction by creating and disseminating actionable knowledge on
data and data sciences, impacting data and data science practices and approaches, and by
building partnerships and networks to drive scalable social change.
Assessing and mapping the current landscape of data science usage, players, challenges, opportunities and trends in SPOs
Building models, tools and processes to gauge the levels of adoption, practices and expertise in using data for an SPO
The ISDM CDSSI Hackathon: Code 4 Change (C4C) is an opportunity for data science enthusiasts to create innovative solutions and make a positive impact on the lives of marginalised groups.
