As part of DAC’s continued involvement in the Open Data, Open Jobs Initiative, we have collaborated with the Governor’s office in preparing for the Workforce Innovation Challenge held on Aug. 25 – 26. The datathon is a part of the Governor’s New Virginia Economy initiative. The innovations expected to come out of the datathon will help the commonwealth gain a deeper understanding of the current and future job opportunities in today’s new economy. DAC Ph.D student played a crucial role in preparing and harvesting the Open Jobs datasets used by participants in the datathon to develop apps. Click here to learn more about the datathon.
