Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2017
This description of Paul Duan's work was prepared when Paul Duan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2017.
Paul Duan is demonstrating that the greatest limitation of today’s data sciences is not the technology itself, but rather the processes and agendas within institutions that can limit the technology’s potential. Thus, he’s set out to partner with existing governments while mobilizing a highly-skilled team of software developers, computer programmers and data science engineers to co-design parallel digital social services tools to be led and owned by the citizen sector.
