I appreciate how much work goes into cleaning and preparing vast amounts of complex data for analysis and public consumption. As the former (2015\u20122017) Chief Data Scientist of the United States DJ Patil said, “It’s impossible to overstress this: 80% of the work in any data project is in cleaning the data.” I’m proud to work at Trifacta where we’re tackling this data preparation challenge for government agencies, particularly the more-vital-than-ever Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Other public sector customers include the , the U.S. Air Force, and National Air and Space Administration (NASA). Whether an agency is kicking off a new ML/AI initiative or trying to improve the speed and accuracy of analytics, Trifacta’s data preparation platform helps accelerate mission success.
