Event #4: AFCEA Bethesda December Breakfast: Leveraging Actionable Data to Enable Automation
Date: December 17, 2019
Location: National Press Club in Washington, DC
The federal government must leverage data as a strategic asset to grow the economy, increase the effectiveness of government, facilitate oversight, and promote transparency, according to the President’s Management Agenda (PMA). Yet, many agencies struggle to establish a robust, integrated approach for using data to deliver on mission, serve customers, and steward resources. How can agency managers derive insight from the massive amounts of collected data in order to run smoother operations, make more informed decisions and deliver better services to citizens? Building a strong data layer is an essential first step.
Join AFCEA Bethesda to hear about initiatives that aim to harness the value of the government’s trove of collected data and opportunities to automate processes to build a strong data layer. Discussions will focus on data storage, ingestion, labeling, context, and where to train models, while looking at improving data quality and integrity.
