Data has become the life blood of decision-making at many federal agencies. Greg Godbout is one of the leaders in federal data adoption. Now the chief technology officer at the Environmental Protection Agency, he's helping decision-making at both the federal and state levels. Federal Drive with Tom Temin interviewed Godbout and the agency's chief data scientist, Robin Thottungal, for an update on data initiatives. Godbout explained how data innovation can keep federal executives from making bad decisions on what they don't really know.
