Lincoln School of Social and Political Sciences, Professor Steve McKay has been awarded a progress prize for his top-scoring submission to the Fragile Families Challenge, a mass collaboration that combines predictive modeling, causal inference, and in-depth interviews to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in the US. The competition received over 3,000 submissions from more than 150 teams across the world and prize winners are invited to attend a scientific workshop at Princeton University this November.
Congratulations to Steve and we hope that he has a safe and worthwhile trip.
