In May 2016, the eScience Institute hosted a DataDive organized by DataKind and sponsored by Microsoft. The event followed a city of Seattle commitment to Vision Zero, an effort aimed at reducing traffic fatalities and serious injuries to zero. The data scientist volunteers who participated in this event worked on an exploratory analysis and modeling of traffic volume and collisions in preparation for a longer-term DataKind study of pedestrian and bicycle safety in Seattle.
