The Center for Data Science and Public Policy at the University of Chicago is a joint initiative of The Harris School of Public Policy and the Computation Institute that seeks to further the use of data science in policy research and practice. The center consists of data scientists with interdisciplinary backgrounds (computer science, statistics, math, physics, economics, social sciences), policy researchers, and practitioners who work together with external partners to solve problems with social impact. Over the last two years, we have focused on projects such as:
Our research includes supervised learning for large-scale behavior prediction, text analysis, signal processing and speech analysis, experiment design, online and active learning, and combining machine-learning techniques with social science and behavioral psychology.
