NEXT Talks: So You Want to be a Data Scientist

Join us at our inaugural NEXT Talks on Tuesday, May 28th and meet our Virginia-based data science team, who—in different stages of their careers—successfully navigated the data science maze and now offer firsthand advice, tips, and insight on how to get started in data science. We’ll take an in-depth look at the field, the challenges you’ll face, and the skills you need to bring to it.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone who wants to turn their passion for data, technology, analytics, and innovation into a data science or data engineering career (especially in the Defense and Intelligence Communities). And if you’ve already got a foothold in data science, this is a great opportunity to network and exchange ideas with your peers.


WHAT TO EXPECT: Insightful, engaging conversation in a fun, casual atmosphere. We’ll start with a free-form panel discussion, followed by audience Q&A. Our NEXT Talks also feature technical breakout sessions presented by our Data Science team on real-world examples of how we apply AI/Machine Learning in the National Security community.



  • Resources to get you started
  • Knowledge of how AI/ML is being applied in the National Security space
  • Inspiration and community!
