“Government Open Data for Data Scientists”
Abstract: Learn how to find government data, what you can do with it, and best practices for data scientists and researchers. Public services require data to operate. In the course of doing business, government agencies create data about the people they serve and the services they deliver. They collect data to evaluate how well they deliver services and to identify needed services. Agencies have data on the environment, people, business, the economy, education, art, health, and more. This data belongs to the people and to you.
