Darniet K. Jennings, Ph.D. MBA
Laboratory for Analytic Sciences
This talk will focus on how data science techniques are being investigated for developing insights into analytic tradecraft, analysis workflows, and organizational performance. There are many definitions of data science, however there is one core reality which is true in all its variations. In the absence of sufficient data, there are limited means to create value through data science. Data wrangling is as much the foundation of a data science approach as the analytics themselves. Since the availability of data is key, the presentation will also share ideas on concepts being implemented for a workflow analysis dashboard that combines a “work in progress” data elicitation process with instrumentation to categorize, visualize, and prioritize different types of work within an organization for situational awareness and decision support. The practical idea behind a work-oriented view is to create a visual representation where tradeoffs and decisions can be interactively reviewed in a consistent manner, with or without a complete set of source data.
