What have states, universities and other partners learned from projects that facilitate data sharing and develop state analytic and research capacity? What are the implications for federal and state practices and policies?
The main goal of this event is to bring prominent scholars in the Asia-Pacific region together with PhD students to learn about the interconnection between knowledge and institutions from a complex systems perspective. We will explore innovation policies, applied blockchain technologies and cryptoeconomics.
The overall topic of the conference focus's on the comparative study of life courses in different nations, different historical times or across subgroups in a population. The aim is to generate and exchange information on comparable data resources with information of early predictors on later outcomes across different domains and across different life stages.
Evidence-based decision making is gaining traction at agencies, a new report says, and there are some clear lessons about how to increase federal use of the practice.
The Society for Economic Measurement (SEM) was founded to promote research on economic measurement, using advanced tools from economic theory, econometrics, aggregation theory, experimental economics, mathematics, and statistics. The long run objectives are to meet the data standards established for the physical sciences, subject to the inherent limitations of a social science.
You are invited to attend an informational webinar on the Applied Data Analytics training program presented by the USDA and the Coleridge Initiative for hands-on analysis of microdata that will take place this fall in Alexandria, VA. The program will use IRI Consumer Network (i.e., household purchases of a large consumer panel) to examine issues of interest to USDA on food purchasing patterns of households participating in the Special Supplemental Nutritional Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). The curriculum draws on best practices from both industry and government, including adherence to strict federal requirements on security and confidentiality. Skills taught include data linkage, visualization, and machine learning at a level accessible and useful for data novices and computer experts alike. Participants will be grouped in to teams of 5 or fewer people to design and conduct a research project using the IRI scanner data.
A Career Path to Data Science Through Privacy & Confidentiality. In this Mentor Talk, Professor Lane will share her experience of Labor Economics reserach leading to a career in building large scale infrastructures and a series of recent key note presentations at a variety of computer science conferences.
Where's the Data: A New Approach to Social Science Search & Discovery. In this talk, Lane described the approach that the Coleridge Initiative is taking to address the science reproducibility challenge. The approach is to provide remote access for government analysts and researchers to confidential data in a secure data facility and to build analytical capacity and collaborations through an Applied Data Analytics training program.
The ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research and the Mannheim Centre for Competition and Innovation (MaCCI) are pleased to announce their eighth conference on the economics of innovation and patenting. The goal of the conference is to present new research and to stimulate discussion between international researchers. Theoretical and empirical contributions from all areas of the economics of innovation and patenting are welcome.
What Governments can do to harness the potential of big data.
L’évaluation de ses actions est une mission de l’Institut national du cancer. Mené en collaboration avec l’ITMO Cancer, le projet HELIOS (Health Investment Observatory) vise à développer une approche innovante pour évaluer l’impact du financement des projets de recherche sur le cancer.
In this session, learn how Dr. Julia Lane, Director of the Administrative Data Research Facility (ADRF) at NYU, used AWS and AWS Public Sector Partner Earthling Security to build a software-as-a-service (SaaS) research and analysis environment that hosts sensitive U.S. Census Bureau data.
A celebration of government IT’s disruptors, innovators and emerging leaders Presented by FCW, GCN, Washington Technology and Defense Systems
This panel introduces the TANF Data Innovations (TDI) project, a new collaboration between the Federal government, research contractors, universities, and states to improve data use in TANF and related human services. TDI will support states’ data integration and analysis efforts, advancing the use of evidence to improve the lives of low-income families. The President’s 2018 budget highlights TDI as an example of new initiatives using administrative data to accelerate evidence building and program improvement.
The advent of big data means that the time has come for change in the way in which we collect and use data on human beings. However, that change needs to be effected in a thoughtful, careful way so that we don’t jump out of the frying pan into the fire.
BigSurv18 will bring together international researchers, practitioners, and experts to address how promising technologies and methodologies for using massive datasets can improve, supplement, or replace data and estimates from complex surveys and censuses.
You are invited to a special data event we are convening at NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service on October 24, 2018 with Sir Bill English, the former Prime Minister of New Zealand. English was responsible for implementing the integrated data system (IDI) in New Zealand. Now agencies are using it across the board to implement evidence-based social investment decisions.
"Big data" and related analysis through AI are changing how projects of all kinds are driven forward. The impact capital/financial inclusion/economic policy sectors have made inroads using these techniques, including loan underwriting, constituent/customer acquisition and macro-economic forecasting, however the full potential of big data-driven initiatives remains largely untapped.
Our government and society are beginning to embrace data formats that equip insight-driven decisions and reduce compliance burdens. Policy reforms, new nonproprietary standards like the Legal Entity Identifier, and technological breakthroughs are coming together to deliver data directly to users. DT2018 was the Data Foundation’s flagship event.
The data revolution is transforming businesses but how can it work more effectively for Governments and public organisations? Why the public sector behind the private in the way that it utilises data and how can that be changed? These are questions that Professor Julia Lane from NYU Wagner is tackling in her work.
