Please join us in welcoming Data Pop Alliance co-founder Dr. Emmanuel Letouzé for a presentation and discussion how Big Data can be used to promote inclusive and sustainable economic development; for example, to monitor global inequalities and envision corrective actions. The Data Pop Alliance founding members include the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, MIT Connection Science, and London’s Alliance, and the group is currently working on Colombia’s National Big Data ODI and Sweden’s Flowminder Foundation, the Data Pop Strategy or OPAL* with UN ESCWA in Lebanon, with Oxfam Mexico on Gender Violence and on the Global South COVID Recovery Plan (see the C-19 Global South Observatory), and on the Global South Response and Recovery Vision and Action Plan from UN DESA. In addition to Dr. Letouzé, Fordham’s Computer Science Department will be present to discuss a new CISC-ECON course, Data for Development: OPAL or Open Access Algorithms for Better Decisions. If you have any questions, please contact research and teaching assistant Jeffrey Yozwiak at firstname.lastname@example.org or CIPS/Economics faculty member Darryl McLeod at email@example.com.
