Topic: Army Data Science Initiatives

Abstract: From humanitarian relief after natural disasters at home and abroad, to planning budgets, designing new vehicles, recruiting soldiers and civilians, planning operations, and analyzing cyber and intelligence events, the Army uses data science to analyze and evaluate options.  The goal is to give Army senior leaders the information needed to make difficult decisions.  Time required for these data science analyses can be sufficient, or can require quick, accurate responses.   Using effective data visualization to present data science results to clarify options and tradeoffs is essential.  Modern data science tools and cloud infrastructures enable the Army to build collaborative teams, solving complex problems together.

Bio: Lisa Shaler has supported Soldiers and the Army with technology for more than 20 years.  She led Army Intel with "Big Data" technology efforts including Analytics, Cloud Computing, and Cyber Security.  At the Army G-8 Program Analysis & Evaluation Directorate, she focuses on Data Migration to the Cloud, and the Army G-8 Data Science Pilot.  She earned master's degrees from MIT, National Defense University, and Virginia Tech.  Her research interests include computational social science and complexity studies.
