This beta project, led by Wigan Council, is building on the prototype developed during the previous alpha phase. The team will now build the web-based tool for analysts to identify the errors in their data and automatically fix 37% of these errors.
The project team will also build a community of engaged analysts to contribute to developing the tool further, and become up-skilled in using Python to automate tasks in a practical way.
