Jake Porway

Founder of DataKind
Jake uses big data to tackle big social problems. As the founder of DataKind, he connects-and acts as an accessible bridge between-data scientists and not-for-profit companies, which often don't have the know-how or resources to benefit from data analysis. A former New York Times Data Scientist, Porway wants all of humanity to benefit from the gains of big data.
With DataKind, "We're connecting nonprofits, NGOs, and other data-rich social change organizations with data scientists willing to donate their time and knowledge to solve social, environmental, and community problems," Porway explains.
Irrepressibly curious, Porway is both a scientist and a coder, equally excited to pioneer the next machine learning algorithm as his is to optimize the code to run it. He hopes to make machines smarter-and he looks for new ways to help machines make sense of things, for the greater good.
