This will also include thinking through how to help programs transition from old data management and analysis processes to new ones like data science techniques involving machine learning and Natural Language Processing. This is an exciting time to collaborate along side informaticians and program staff at CDC as we research, learn, and redesign our future modern state. The participant will learn how to elicit and document requirements from scientists, how to translate those requirements into solutions, how to research possible solutions, test, and implement those solutions.
