How can Computer Scientists help end poverty?

Our Mission

The Computer Science Department at Xavier University is taking on a two year community engagement project. We will be exploring the issue of poverty in our community and looking at how computer scientists can aid in bring Poverty to an end. We spent the first semester exploring the issue of poverty. We attended a Big Hunger talk and held a poverty simulation.  We are now brainstorming problems that we can work on to help the community.
