From UChicago News:

During a daylong conference held at the University of Chicago, 50 high school students brainstormed possible applications for data sets available for free through the City of Chicago Data Portal. Subjects included monitoring crime rates near parks, analyzing pothole repair response times, preventing cyberbullying, and tracking patterns of littering in order to find the best places to put new garbage cans.
