In 2014, a team of researchers and information technology specialists at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) developed a data science strategy as part of LaRC's Comprehensive Digital Transformation Initiative, with the goal of developing long-term capabilities for data analytics and machine learning in aerospace domains. Over the past three years, significant progress has been made in developing pilots and projects through a strategy of collaboration between mission support organizations, mission organizations, and external partners from universities and industry. In this talk, we will present a summary of the technical aspects of our work, as well as the progress made in collaboration, outreach, and education.
Jeremy Yagle is the Technical Lead for LaRC’s Data Science Team. Before joining the team at Langley, he worked at NASA’s Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Facility to develop algorithms for the strategic assessment of new technologies related to NASA mission goals, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Pittsburgh District) in the Navigation Design Branch of the Engineering and Construction Division, spent nearly 10 years as a CPS caseworker in Pennsylvania, and served in the US Navy. Jeremy holds a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Pennsylvania State University, and is a graduate of Naval Nuclear Power School.
