"A data-science enabled web application called ‘Food Inspection Violations, Anticipating Risk’ or FIVAR for short, is assisting cities and counties across the nation to do just that. Developed by the small, social benefit company, Open Data Nation, FIVAR feeds in open, public data, processes it through a locally customized algorithm, and gets actionable, statistically significant, information into the hands of health inspection agencies. With FIVAR, agencies track what factors contribute to violations, prioritize inspections according to risk in near real time, and keep the public safer from food borne illness."
