Project Description

From awarding grants to catalyze economic development or developing long-term strategies, EDA makes data- and evidence-based decisions daily. Through our portfolio of grants, we generate and collect a wide variety of quantitative, qualitative, and narrative data, and we and our stakeholders rely on economic data and analyses from a wide variety of sources. We make use of these data, but increasing the interconnection among the data and their sources and ensuring their quality and consistency will lay the groundwork for leveraging predictive analysis, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other techniques to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our decisionmaking and operations. We're looking for one or more innovators to collaborate with our team and each other to unlock the potential of integrated, interconnected data!
