Data project aims to bring transparency, improve justice

The University of Cincinnati and the Ohio Criminal Sentencing Commission on Monday celebrated a partnership to create the Ohio Sentencing Data Platform, an event that received media coverage throughout Ohio and nationally.

Ohio Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor and University of Cincinnati President Neville Pinto signed a partnership to establish the Ohio Sentencing Data Platform, which will be managed by the Information Technology Solutions Center at UC’s School of Information Technology.
