U of T DSI, UNICEF team partner on research, training focused on learning


The University of Toronto’s Data Sciences Institute (DSI) has partnered with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Frontier Data and Tech team to complete joint research and training focused on complex challenges involving children. The partners will develop a tool to predict student dropout rates using data and artificial intelligence, as well as creating early warning systems in education to support students and schools that may be at risk. “By combining our community’s expertise in data science with UNICEF’s commitment to driving results for children globally, we have the opportunity to make a profound impact,” said U of T DSI Director Lisa Strug.
