Fri, 7 Jul 2023 |, CAIRO

CAIRO research professor, Prof Dr Ivan Yamshchikov, together with Anna Bykova and Nikolay Filippov, published a pioneering paper at this year's AAAI conference* that sheds new light on the rehabilitation of homeless people.

The abstract of the paper reads as follows:

“This paper presents a large anonymized dataset of homelessness alongside insights into the data-driven rehabilitation of homeless people. The dataset was gathered by a large non-profit organization working on rehabilitating the homeless for twenty years. This is the first dataset that we know of that contains rich information on thousands of homeless individuals seeking rehabilitation. We show how data analysis can help to make the rehabilitation of homeless people more effective and successful. Thus, we hope this paper alerts the data science community to the problem of homelessness“ (Bykova, A., Filippov, N., & Yamshchikov, I. P. (2023). Rehabilitating Homeless: Dataset and Key Insights.
