On November 19, 2013, the Wharton Social Impact Initiative will be hosting the Social Impact through Crowd Sourcing and Big Data workshop at the Wharton school campus in San Francisco. The conference is sponsored by CDW and will feature an impressive roster of speakers.
It will be my privilege to emcee the event, which will feature prominent leaders in innovation, crowdsourcing and big data looking for opportunities to increase social impact.
Crowdsourcing presenters at the conference will include Lukas Biewald, CEO of Crowdflower; Deepak Puri, Director of business development at VMWare and a volunteer at CauseBrigade; Olivier Delarue, Innovation Lead at the UN Refugee Agency; Katherine Klein and Managing Director of the Wharton School Social Impact Initiative.
Big Data presenters will include Peter Fader, Professor of Marketing at the Wharton School; Peter Skomorch, former Principal Data Scientist at LinkedIn; and Ari Gesher, Engineering Ambassador at Palantir Technologies.
Case studies will be presented by Katherine Townsend, Special Assistant for Engagement at USAID; Robert Munro, CEO of Idibon; and Paul Arnpriester the non-profit business development manager at CDW.
Anyone who is attending the Social Innovation Summit on November 19 and 20 at Stanford or who otherwise is interested in social innovation should plan to attend the conference. Cost to register is just $40 but seats are limited.
