Landscaping the Future
Data Science offers transformative new tools and approaches for nonprofits and direct service providers to tackle the most pressing issues in their communities. At DataKind, we are continually pushing forward ideas and opportunities with landscape analyses offering new solutions to old (and new) problems.

Economic empowerment is the goal of improving quality of life through increasing access to economic opportunities, while providing the resources necessary to take advantage of those opportunities. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can provide new opportunities for data driven decision making, and a framework for solutions that support mobility from poverty to stability.
