3:45pm - 4:30pm Finding a Lost Person and Evaluating State Budget - Case Studies in Government Analytics
Monday Sep 15 - Room: Constitution A
The Institute for Advanced Analytics created the nation's first Master of Science degree in Analytics. One major portion of the degree is an industry or government sponsored practicum project. Over 50 different projects have been solved over the past seven years. This presentation goes over two case studies from government agencies. The first case study tries to find a lost person in a city where a severe illness has broken out and they are thought to be the cause. The second case study helps a state agency plan their budget for the future.
