“Data Science, AI and Data Philanthropy in Foundations” – Launch event and insights
Philea and Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo will host a launch event for the new report “Data Science, AI and Data Philanthropy in Foundations: On the Path to Maturity” on 15 February, sharing an overview and insights of the findings on data work in European philanthropy.
In tandem with the rest of society, philanthropic foundations have been influenced by the profound change that has made data and technology pivotal and imperative to maximising impact. However, where do foundations stand in this AI revolution? Do foundations truly utilise data? Why does this matter? To unpack the layers of data work taking place in European philanthropy and provide a baseline of understanding on the data strategies, achievements, challenges, and transformative potentials,
Philea and Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo jointly launched a survey in March 2023 to produce “Data Science, AI and Data Philanthropy in Foundations” that will enhance the sector’s understanding of what is being done or achieved in this realm.
The event will offer an overview of the report, including the key findings which are split into: data management, data science, artificial intelligence (AI) and data philanthropy. It will also provide an opportunity for interested participants from the philanthropy field to ask questions and learn more about a vital topic that will change how foundations operate in Europe.
