The purpose of this course is to train data scientists that there is more to data science than statistical correlation. Correlation is not enough to prove causation. In this course, the data scientist is taught when experimental data science techniques could be useful, how they differ from linear correlation, and how one can use ANOVA and MANOVA statistical methods to help prove causation (not just mere correlation).
This course is designed to deepen the tradecraft skills of the IC’s analytic corps, advance the profession of intelligence analysis, and meet the tradecraft training needs of experienced officers, particularly those aspiring to leadership roles. This course is part of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s (ODNI) Intelligence Community (IC) Advanced Analyst Program (ICAAP) which is designed to deepen the tradecraft skills of the IC’s analytic corps and advance the profession of intelligence analysis.
Designed to help analysts engage effectively with data scientists and take lead responsibility for ensuring that data science outcomes address mission needs, the course presents data science techniques and examples to support this goal. Successful data science projects require iterative collaboration between analysts and data scientists, from problem formulation through reporting of results.
This analytic techniques course focuses on critical thinking and structured methods for organizing and analyzing mostly non-quantitative data to produce analytic judgments.
At IntelliGenesis LLC, we are focused on the success of our customers’ missions. A key component of that success is derived from on-time, focused training on subjects that have the biggest impact toward accomplishing that mission.
