How We’re Working with DOD
Our data science educators train our nation’s soldiers, airmen, and sailors, and support contractors on how to perform applied data analysis with real-world data sets specifically chosen and structured to reflect the issues and opportunities of individual students. We help DoD tackle important policy problems by using modern computational and data analysis methods and tools.
Data Society works with the DOD to find ways to improve our nation’s defense posture, by supporting improved procurement accuracy & predictability, identifying more resilient supply chains, assisting programs that help the readiness of our warfighters, working to improve Cybersecurity, and working with our military health organizations to ensure maximum effectiveness.
"America’s economic prosperity, national security, and our individual liberties depend on our commitment to securing cyberspace and maintaining an open, interoperable, secure, and reliable internet."‐ President Obama
National Security Relies More and More on Big Data
Streamline data collection from signals intelligence, full-motion video, photos, unstructured text, and social media.
Border Security and Customs Enforcement
Data is critical to capturing an accurate snapshot of CBP’s performance and understanding where funding is needed to shore up border operations.
Apply data science to prevent, detect, and remediate expanding and evolving cybersecurity threats.
Assist existing process steps to support human decision-making by providing automated analysis of various scenarios, ultimately helping speed up processes and minimize human error or bias.
Other Work Examples
NASA - Machine Learning Program
We designed a five-day hands-on, intensive machine learning program that turned NASA employees into savvy data scientists with a solid foundation to tackle data cleaning, visualization, and modeling.
Northrop Grumman- Data Science Academy
We contracted with Northrop Grumman to provide a turn-key data science academy covered a range of topics data analytics & programming topics: data acquisition, storage, cleaning, analysis and visualization.
The International Monetary Fund - Data Mining Tools and Projects
We worked with the IMF team to analyze cross-border payments, daily cash receipts to forecast annual receipts, and Google Trends searches to infer key areas of economic activity on a timely basis. These analyses provided vastly improved situational awareness of financial flows and confidence.
