Obama’s big data project targets community improvement

Kenneth Corbin | March 11, 2016
White House Opportunity Project initiative is a grass-roots effort to push out government data and encourage nonprofits, developers and others to build new community-improvement tools.

Those applications are among a dozen new tools that are rolling out in association with the White House Opportunity Project. Additionally, more than 30 nonprofits, local governments and other organizations have made commitments to use resources made available through the project to offer new services to their communities in what the White House hopes will become an easily replicable framework of data-driven collaboration that can take hold around the country.

"It's not just a federal initiative anymore, it's connecting all the way to cities and local environments," said DJ Patil, the first person to hold the title of U.S. chief data scientist.
