Where data science meets society

When Data Makes Sense

Our world is complex and chaotic 

The modern metropolis exemplifies this complexity. It has become a place of “liquid modernity” marked by constant change. While each of these changes challenge us, they can not be regarded in isolation; they are interconnected. To understand the problems and opportunities in today’s economy, we need to connect the dots. This is what the DWG does.
