Good data collection and analysis can help every UN Agency to make smart decisions and determine where to direct resources. UNICC’s growing Data Analytics programme, in alignment with the UN Secretary General’s Data Strategy, supports the United Nations family to better deliver on its missions and mandates, working more digitally and more effectively to produce measurable results.
In many ways, the pandemic has highlighted the inadequacies of our systems, processes, governance and behaviors. On the other hand, it has also provided an opportunity for data scientists and AI scientists to put their advanced techniques and tools to use by helping leaders make decisions in a challenging environment that’s dominated by speed, uncertainty and lack of data insights.
Are you an undergraduate or Master’s student of Computer Science, Statistics or Applied Data Science who wants to make a difference? Block your calendar and put your creative hat on to solve global challenges using open-source data in UNICC’s first global hackathon in celebration of the organization’s 50th anniversary!
Registration is open until 11:59pm (EST) February 9, 2021 (original closing date has been changed due to high volume of registration).
