Data Science in Government
While technology continues to evolve, the data it accumulates grows at an exponential rate. With data sets larger and more complex than ever, big data requires new means of analysis, transfer, storage and visualization.
Government agencies at all levels use data to enhance security and prevent fraud, improve service delivery and emergency response, and democratize information among many other uses. Whether federal, state or city government, each is tasked with maximizing the benefits while minimizing risks. Data science in government has the potential to help improve education, healthcare, energy efficiency and safety.
