Given the current situation, how can data science help find solutions? What light can we shine to help people understand how to make sense of what is going on?
If you have any ideas, or can even help us organise a hackathon (especially by providing a venue), please get in touch!
Collecting what is already available is valuable… For example:
I guess a easier start would be like a time series chart of the number of people arrested?
That would be great!
Weirdly enough, the police has stopped publishing arrest statistics on its website in June…
The government has released public order arrest statistics by age and gender:
|Age of the arrestees
|12 to 14
|15 to 17
|18 to 20
|21 to 25
|26 to 30
|31 to 40
|41 to 50
Drawing these arrest statistics as a reasonable histogram is a good exercise.
Btw, actually there seems to have more than a dozen articles released from the gov everyday, possible to do some nlp?
What sort of articles?
I’d like to do some author clustering!
It should be actually a list of press release everyday actually, for example this is all the 2019-12-10 press release:
Oh yes, I’ve wanted to collect and classify these press releases for years! Let’s work on that together?
Sure, and welcome whoever saw this in the open internet as well
