Brown Bag Lunch – Using Data to Make Positive Change

How to harness the power of data for good!

We know that data has the power to make change. But how specifically can that power be harnessed to make a positive difference, locally and globally?

This week, Hubber Jennifer Shellinck will talk about going from high-level goals to the nuts and bolts of working with data, and how to connect these dots.

Jennifer Shellinck is an Ottawa-based data scientist who founded the data science company Sysabee to help organizations tackle thorny data problems that matter.

Jen’s passion is in bringing cutting-edge data technology to organizations wanting to form the best analysis and decisions. Sysabee applies the very latest machine-learning and systems-modeling to help organizations achieve their greater potential.

Jennifer is also the founding member of the Data Science Experts Group, an association of specialists who customize data-driven solutions for each client. Jennifer’s machine learning and simulation expertise comes from her background in Cognitive Science, earning a Ph.D. in 2009. As an adjunct professor at Carleton University, she remains active in academic research and keeps up-to-date on the latest research.
