Week 2 of the “Applying AI to the Student Debt Crisis” project was an exciting week. The teams began diving into work, defining tasks and identifying working groups.
After the first project team call last Sunday, questions emerged from participants. Many of the Omdena data scientists working with the ShapingEDU educators are from other countries and are not as familiar with the nuances of student debt in the United States. Based on the questions posed, I created a presentation and we scheduled a second weekly call for anyone available to answer some questions.
I shared additional information about student debt, identified current data sources that are publicly available and asked everyone to keep track of the sources of their data and information from so we can create a bibliography later.
Sunday, on the weekly project call, over 40 participants attended to receive updates and provide their input on their progress. Participants ask questions, get feedback and are mentored through the process by the Omdena team.
As we dive deeper into the problem of student debt, some specific areas of focus are emerging.
It is exciting to be a part of such a fast-moving project. Next week, groups will begin presenting their initial findings so the rest of the group can provide feedback and find synergy among the group and tasks being worked on.
More next week!
