Since the first federal census in 1790, the U.S. government has been accumulating statistics and crunching numbers on everything from family size to crime to how many bushels a farmer harvests. Until recently, government agencies had limited capabilities for analyzing the vast quantities of data they collected and published. Now, however, with Hadoop and its surrounding tools, the Federal government has potential to improve decision-making and save millions through operational efficiencies in areas as diverse as security, bioinformatics, predictive policing, and healthcare.
Big data solutions are also making dramatic improvements in the government’s ability to serve citizens with information through programs like the Apache Hadoop-based USASearch.gov now driving search results at over 1000 government websites. In this webinar, we’ll explore some of the issues surrounding the U.S. government and big data, and discuss its potential for achieving efficiencies, savings, and big breakthroughs.
