Data as Complex as Life
We do data science to solve problems in the world today. These are complex issues that evolve and make our work dynamic. Solutions may often seem elusive compelling us to mix all sizes and types of data. Our research relies on the Science of All Data, a unique approach to addressing complex challenges in society.
Doing Data Science
Our research approach is framed by the processes and infrastructure that a specific challenge demands. In doing data science, our research teams apply our Data Science Research Model, Data Science Framework, and Data Ethics to delve into all types of data to develop solutions to tough problems that may seem unsolvable at first. Following the steps in our research models helps us to uncover data insights that are valuable in better understanding the problems at hand.
Community Learning Through Data-Driven Discovery
Our experiences in working with communities has led to a model for data-driven community engagement and community-based research, which we call "Community Learning Through Data-Driven Discovery." Our vision is to bring the data revolution to communities—both small and large—through this proven and thorough process.
