The **Data Science Working Group’s** purpose is to efficiently assess, inspire, and tackle Code for San Francisco’s data science needs, as well as to help the City with its data science needs whenever appropriate. Our practicing and aspiring data scientists are available to:
+ provide solutions to data science centric social good problems;
+ develop data science-centric solutions to social good problems;
+ assess/inspire the possibility of data science components in other projects;
+ provide resources to help produce those components;
+ provide a learning environment for ourselves and others to learn more practical data science.
In pursuing the above, we humbly hope that CfSF's dedicated project groups come to consider us an integral and synergistic resource for the group at large.

### Administration
Team Leads: [Jude Calvillo](http://linkd.in/1BGeytb) and [Sanat Moningi](http://bit.ly/1PFurlp)
Lead Data Scientist: [Matthew Pancia](http://bit.ly/1PFuA8k)
Website: [datascience.codeforsanfrancisco.org](http://datascience.codeforsanfrancisco.org)
Wiki (resources): [DSWG Wiki >>](https://github.com/sfbrigade/data-science-wg/wiki)
### Current Initiatives
The DSWG's initiatives are centered on building data science components for CfSF's project groups. We do, however, also pursue exploratory analyses that could inspire dedicated projects at CfSF, as well as develop standalone visualization tools.
Here's what we're currently working on, mostly with gov't/org partners, but as mentioned above, we're eager to work with -or inspire- dedicated project groups.

### Recent Happenings
The team recently presented some of its work on the above at Code for San Francisco's CodeAcross 2016, where we hoped to inspire the day's hackers to use SF's OpenData portal in creative -and productive- ways.
Code for SF's Data Science Working Group continues to make great strides in its local impact and apparent viability. Since our last repo update, our young group won its government challenge at one of the nation's premier data science-focused hackathons (Bayes Hack, 2016). It also recently presented its numerous projects to local hackers and potential gov't/org partners at Code for SF's Demo Night, as well as presented its 311 analysis findings directly to City officials.
...and now we've got a website(!), to better convey the full scope of our identity, happenings, and means of engagement.
We invite you to visit our new website, at [datascience.codeforsanfrancisco.org](http://datascience.codeforsanfrancisco.org/), to learn more about the above!
