This week on “Off the Shelf”,  Young Bang and a team from the Booz Allen Hamilton Strategic Innovation Group, share their insights and expertise focusing on analytics and data science.

Young, senior vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton, introduces how we as citizens, organizations, technologists, and data scientists, are empowered to better our lives through data.

Sumiko Mekaru, a veterinarian and epidemiologist, along with other leaders within Booz Allen, including Eric Druker, Jesus Jackson, and Graham Gilmer, dig deep into how data has helped us better understand and even predict possible epidemics like Zika and Ebola.

The team referenced that truly uncovering the power behind our data includes leveraging technology solutions, like Epidemico and Sailfish, as well as methods like data liberation and machine learning.
