Applications are open for Pollicy Data Fellowship Program 2019. Pollicy believes in the power of data to revolutionize how governments deliver services to their citizens. They aim to digitally transform government services across Africa through an information-centric approach and craft better life experiences by harnessing improved data.
Moreover, There are major gaps within government and stakeholders in collecting data, analyzing this data and using this data within planning, budgeting, and programming. By improving data processes, also, they can improve how services are delivering, how budgets are allocated, how citizens interact with governments and how organizations advocate for social change. Policy’s fellowship program aims to introduce students and young professionals to civic technology initiatives while enabling these fellows to utilize their development skills to create innovative data products. Further, The 3-month fellowship will include opportunities to implement cutting-edge technologies in the fields of data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing. Fellows are expected to use their time to assist in the development of front and back end code, algorithmic functions, meta-analysis, and data visualization, finally culminating in the in a presentation of their work to the civic technology community.
