Driving Impact Through Data and Tech
We believe rigorous data analysis and thoughtful engineering can help organizations innovate.
Creating Opportunities For Growth
We seek to translate data into insights, build open source solutions, and contribute to the data and tech for good movement.
Building Collaborative Partnerships
We pair Two Sigma's data science and engineering skills with our partners’ expertise to identify and build impactful solutions together.
Our Partnership Approach
Data science and technology support with a human touch.
Engagement and Team
We bring our teams together to assess the viability of a data science or technology collaboration. Next, we assemble a volunteer team of Two Sigma data scientists, engineers, and project managers with the right skill sets and capabilities for your project.
Research and Development
Once we’re aligned on scope, deliverables, format, and timing the project can get underway. Our engagement team works closely with you on a part-time basis over the course of the project to manage everything from discovery to delivery.
Results and Impact
While deliverables vary based on each engagement, one of our core goals is to help our partners independently use data and technology more effectively and efficiently in their organizations.
Partnership HighlightsSee All
Robin Hood Foundation
Robin Hood's Learning + Technology Fund aims to leverage technology to transform learning and advance achievement of low-income students across New York City by identifying schools in a position to co-design and implement innovative resources with the Fund’s partners. The Fund felt their current performance criteria eliminated promising school partners, so we partnered to provide alternative performance assessments based on open data. This adjusted approach identified additional schools that were outperforming expectations within their communities, expanding the Fund’s potential candidate pool by nearly 50%.
Nurse-Family Partnership provides in-home nursing support for low-income, first-time mothers and their families, yet 60% do not complete the program. Our partnership developed a system to identify moms at risk of dropping out early and who may benefit from additional outreach.
Moulton Niguel Water District
Moulton Niguel Water District (MNWD) delivers water services to more than 170,000 customers in southern California. With the implementation of digital meters, MNWD had an opportunity to detect leaks and meter malfunctions in a more timely manner, but the challenge of how best to prioritize sites for inspection remained. Data Clinic volunteers built a predictive model to flag anomalies in near real time, and initial testing has indicated positive results. Data Clinic and MNWD are currently collaborating to gather more field data and refine the model.
Vera Institute of Justice
Vera Institute of Justice is a research and advocacy organization focused on building and improving justice systems that ensure fairness, promote safety, and strengthen communities. To help shape the conversation around alternative policing strategies and policy, they partnered with police departments in Tucson, Arizona and Camden, New Jersey to analyze their internal 911 data. We partnered with the institute to contextualize their findings with national data by consolidating public 911 open data to facilitate intra- and inter-city analyses.
Our Open Source Approach
Many organizations face similar challenges. Our Open Source tools are designed to share solutions that can be applied across multiple domains.
Increasing Access to Data and Tooling
We aim to empower organizations to kickstart their data strategy by creating open source tools and data products.
Encouraging Open Collaboration
True innovation requires a community and diverse perspectives. We encourage collaboration and seek feedback by building in the open.
