GAB Forum: Melvin Greer, Chief Data Scientist at Intel

Today's Government Analytics Breakfast Forum welcomed Melvin Greer, Chief Data Scientist at Intel Corporation for his talk, Artificial Intelligence: Driving Innovation in Government.

Mr. Greer spoke about the many ethical and legal implications of using big data and automation in government.  For example, data collected on children, such as their academic performance and indiscretions, might significantly influence their prospects in the workforce later in life.  Is this a fair and appropriate use of data?
  
Mr. Greer also spoke about the need for high quality data science programs in higher education, and emphasized that these programs should focus on meaningful applications of data science methods to challenges across government.  He discussed some of the very real problems related to water, transportation, cyber security and healthcare that can be addressed with emerging analytical approaches.
It's useful to distinguish between different areas of data science, namely analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence.  Each area is best suited to address different types of problems.  Researchers must devote serious consideration to whether a particular approach is useful for the problem at hand before diving into the analysis.
Many thanks to Mr. G1reer for a fantastic presentation.  A video recording will be posted here shortly.
