Upcoming Events

SAC-Deloitte COVID-19 Workshop:
Analytics for Government Response

Deloitte, in conjunction with the Smith Analytics Consortium (SAC), will host a workshop for guided exploration of COVID-19 related data, using various Machine Learning approaches and Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods. In this workshop, led by Deloitte data science experts, students will analyze constituent sentiment, via Tweets, to States' COVID-19 Respond Phase from March-May 2020. The workshop will explore ways in which NLP can be used to develop Market Analysis within the "Respond" phase of the government’s response to pandemics.

This summer series will run from July 9 to August 7 and culminate in student teams presenting insights from their analysis in a white paper, with the top reports to be published on the Smith Analytics Consortium website, and their point-of-view on States' responses to COVID-19 and leading practices in pandemic response.

Students interested in being considered for the workshop can learn more and find a brief description of the workshop content and timeline.
