AI Strategist

The Challenge:

The artificial intelligence strategist will have the opportunity to implement cutting-edge analytical skills and insights for public sector clients. You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll develop algorithms, write scripts, build predictive analytics, use automation, apply machine learning, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help senior leadership to make informed decisions. You’ll provide your customer with a deep understanding of their data, what it all means, and how they can use it.
