Analytics for Good Institute
Big data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence all hold tremendous potential to address complex problems facing society. Our mission is to harness that power for good and use it to help people and communities prosper.
Data as a Force for Good
Data and analytics have the power to change people’s lives for the better by finding the connections and insights that drive positive outcomes.
In partnership with Hennepin County, the McKnight Foundation, and other mission-driven organizations, we’re using analytics to make a difference.
New knowledge is vital to human progress. The Institute collaborates with foundations and private companies on research to move us all forward.
