The Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) final project presentations happened on Aug. 17, 2017, on the Seattle campus. The fellows presented on the results of their projects over a two-hour period to a crowd of more than 100 people, including UW affiliates, community members and members of the press.

King 5 News featured the car cruising team and their work in their video “One-third of Seattle drivers ‘cruising’ for parking, rides, study finds”; they also wrote about this story in a separate article. Microsoft, one of the program’s sponsors, wrote a blog piece on this team’s work titled “Students ‘create something really incredible’ in broader aim to help two cross-border cities thrive together”.

The DSSG Equity Modeler team’s work was highlighted in GeekWire’s piece “Can Seattle avoid Bay Area problems? Researchers using data to predict how neighborhoods will evolve”.

The Cascadia Urban Analytics Cooperative also featured the program in a video on YouTube.

Additional, detailed project result summaries will be forthcoming.
