Data Science

Aligned with the UNSDGs, Helpful Engineering's Data Science initiatives aim to harness this potential, translating vast streams of data into actionable insights for a brighter global future

Data is often referred to as the ‘oil of the 21st century’, but at Helpful Engineering, we believe it’s the compass—guiding us towards a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous future. In the complex web of challenges and solutions outlined by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), data science emerges as a powerful tool. From informing policy decisions to predicting future challenges, the potential of data is limitless. Aligned with the UNSDGs, our Data Science initiatives aim to harness this potential, translating vast streams of data into actionable insights for a brighter global future.

Why Data Science Matters to the UNSDGs

  • Informed Decision Making: Data analytics allows policymakers and organizations to make decisions based on evidence and insights, directly impacting goals such as Good Health and Well-being (Goal 3) and Quality Education (Goal 4).
  • Resource Optimization: Through predictive analytics and optimization techniques, we can ensure responsible consumption and production (Goal 12) by efficiently allocating resources.
  • Transparency & Accountability: Data-driven insights can hold institutions accountable, furthering the agenda of Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions (Goal 16).
  • Forecasting & Predictive Analysis: By predicting potential challenges, data science aids in proactive solutions, especially crucial for goals like Climate Action (Goal 13) and Life Below Water (Goal 14).
