About State

As America's expeditionary force in readiness since 1775, the Marines are forward deployed to win our nation's battles swiftly and aggressively in times of crisis.

The challenge

How might we help U.S. Department of State become more data driven?

The Department of State seeks a Presidential Innovation Fellow to serve as a Senior Advisor to facilitate the establishment of a Chief Data Office to leverage data as a strategic asset. Additionally, this individual will work to lay the foundation for establishing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities for the department. They will serve as a data and technology “Evangelist” to build support to drive innovation that evolves and transforms the department to meet today’s and future national objectives.
