Interview by Audrey Russo and Jonathan Kersting
The annual Super Analytics Challenge is an opportunity for Pitt graduate students to harness the power of data analytics to serve as catalysts for change.
Led by the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, students from unique backgrounds team up to frame a problem, create a data methodology, and generate operable proposals for solutions. In addition, students interact with a variety of senior technology and data executives at Fortune 500 corporations and local community organizations. Past topics included homelessness, food insecurity and this year it’s mental health.
Hear from Pitt's Christopher Barlow, Pitt grad student Tasmia Alfroz, Jewel Denne of Allegheny County and Albrecht Powell of Accenture detail this year's challenge and how they plan to expand it next year.
