Data at the service of humanity

In 2018, the United Nations proposed 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, from zero poverty to gender equality, peace and justice. Dr. Lukasz Golab’s research is finding unique ways to achieve these goals by harnessing the power of big data.

As Canada Research Chair in Data for Good, Golab and his team are applying data analysis techniques to social and environmental issues, using data-intensive software tools to transform terabytes of machine and human generated data into actionable insights for creating a sustainable and inclusive future.
