Opening for a Senior Data Scientist. Position will apply a wide set of statistical, programming and/or engineering disciplines for planning, design, analysis, and specification development for systems and databases to support end user analysis. Responsible for recommendations of platform, end user AI/Client tools, design, quality assurance, and performance standards. Determines benefit of tradeoffs in recommended options in the areas of: design cloud-based data repositories across domains that are discoverable, enabling publish subscribe approaches servicing various consumers across the DoD. These repositories contain data that consists of structured and unstructured data and where possible, this data will be meta tagged for further analytics and as well as fusion purposes. Our program will also propose machine learning and further enhanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to provide previously unrealized military utility in decision aides.
