The National Data Science Organizers was launched as an effort to explore whether the individuals that are participating in a growing number of data science related meetups and grassroots organizations can help the United States make the most of the opportunities created by Big Data. In 2014, we spent almost a year gathering support from large Meetups and nonprofits. In 2015, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the National Science Foundation, and Meetup.com, came together with Meetup organizers, non-profits, and the Big Data Regional Hub network to run an initial kick-off workshop in DC. Since then we have been collecting resources and trying to change the world together. Join us!
“There are so many fantastic people building amazing communities, tools, and educational events. I am excited to be a part of this group, to learn from other organizers, and to impact the world together.” -Dr. Renata Rawlings-Goss, Founder of NDSO and Executive Director of the South Big Data Innovation Hub
