Data Science at the NASA and the White House
I will have the opportunity to learn about the way data science is used at both the White House and NASA as a Presidential Innovation Fellow. I will report here and on twitter @econohammer. Sporadically.
With that, here are the online resources I found in advance of the appointment:
- White House site. The flagship site for the fellowship at whitehouse.gov.
- GitHub. The GitHub organization for the Presidential Innovation Fellows. It’s cool that this exists.
- Wikipedia page. Includes a compendium of former projects and fellows.
- 18F. The website for the encompassing organization that seems to be mainly comprised of former fellows.
- US Digital Services Playbook. The USDS best practices from the private sector and government that, if followed together, will help government build effective digital services.
