For the last three years humanitarian data has been a huge part of our consulting work, our bread and butter so to speak. It’s something we’re deeply passionate about, which is why we got super excited when we saw a new book specifically on data science in crisis situations was being released this July.
We’ve had so much fun reading How Not to Network a Nation with all of you, we decided to take advantage of this opportunity to continue the book club with Big Crisis Data. (Our review of How Not to Network will be online next week)
This promises to be a wholly different reading experience, less narrative, more detailed technical approaches. Not entirely sure if it will work as a group reading experience, but excited to see what the response is!
Like before, we’re kicking off this selection by giving away a free copy … which you’ll want to try to take advantage of because Big Crisis Data does have a hefty sticker price!
