Data Clinic, the data and tech philanthropic arm of Two Sigma, encounters these hurdles on a regular basis, and actively develops tools and products designed to empower users to uncover value in open data. In this session, we will walk people through the use of two of our tools and kickstart a workshop to identify known pain points that still exist with open data and their potential solutions.

The solutions we will demo are:
  • smooshr: A tool for generating and sharing useful taxonomies derived from open data.
  • Newerhoods : A Data Clinic project that aggregates NYC Open Data at the tract-level and uses Machine Learning techniques to re-imagine neighborhood boundaries
