Week 11 - Networks and the City


Over the course of the semester we have developed a variety of data science skills and a considerable familiarity with building permits and their implications across the greater Boston region. This module there is a pressing job to do. This week, we are going to capitalize on the expertise we have developed with municipal administrative records to respond to a challenge posed by a visiting public sector partner. Much like real-world jobs in urban informatics, we will have a limited amount of time to generate a set of actionable insights and recommendations.
