AMA Recap: How Data Can Save the World with Natalie Evans Harris
By Carlos Russo • October 17, 2019
This week, we hosted Natalie Evans Harris, Co-Founder and Head of Strategic Initiatives at BrightHive, for a live online Ask Me Anything session exploring the ways in which data scientists, data professionals, companies, and institutions can equip themselves and others with tools to transform lives through data.
In Natalie's view, every individual has the ability to transform lives and save the world. But only when the right data is accessible at the right time. How do we ensure that happens? During the AMA, she answered questions revolving around the idea that equipping the following groups can move us all forward.
- DIGITAL PERSONS: to exercise freedom of choice in determining how their data can and should be used.
- POLICYMAKERS: to create and deliver policy solutions responsible for the legal and equitable rights needed to experience a truly open internet.
- ORGANIZATIONS: to adopt models of practice that balance innovation with the ethical use of data.
As one of our most popular speakers at this year's Demystifying Data Science Conference, we were excited to have Natalie back to answer questions on this topic live. Watch the embedded AMA session above or follow the link to YouTube here.

In February, Metis Sr. Data Scientist Damien Martin wrote a post on how to foster a data literate and empowered workforce, which allows your data science team to then work on projects rather than ad hoc analyses. In this post, he explains how to carefully scope those data science projects for maximum impact and benefit.
Ai X West, part of Open Data Science Conference (ODSC) West will be held in a virtual format this year on October 28, and one of our Sr. Data Scientists, Javed Ahmed is all set to present. Here, read what he'll cover and how you can register to watch him live.
