What we're about

We have frequent results-focused meetups (http://www.meetup.com/Federal-Big-Data-Working-Group/) that provide opportunities for a broad community of participants to focus on big data products for the Federal Big Data Initiative:

• Federal: Supports the Federal Big Data Initiative (http://semanticommunity.info/A_NITRD_Dashboard/Making_the_Most_of_Big_Data), but not endorsed by the Federal Government or its Agencies;

• Big Data: Supports the Federal Digital Government Strategy (http://semanticommunity.info/AOL_Government/Building_a_Digital_Government) which is "treating all content as data", so big data = all your content;

• Working Group: Data Science Teams composed of Federal Government and Non-Federal Government experts producing big data products; and

• Meetup: The world's largest network of local groups (http://www.meetup.com/about/) to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize like MOOCs (Massive Open On-line Classes) being considered by the White House (http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/12/18/pcast-considers-massive-open-online-courses-moocs-and-related-technologies-higher-ed).

The Federal Big Data Working Group Meetup (http://semanticommunity.info/Data_Science/Federal_Big_Data_Working_Group_Meetup) is also about helping government agencies develop:

• People – Data Scientists/Chief Data Officers

• Process – Data Infrastructure

• Products – Data Publications

Some examples:

• EPA (http://semanticommunity.info/Data_Science/Data_Science_for_EPA_EnviroAtlas)

• FDA (http://semanticommunity.info/Data_Science/Data_Science_for_OpenFDA)

• NOAA (http://semanticommunity.info/Data_Science/Data_Science_for_the_NOAA_Chief_Data_Officer)

• HHS (http://semanticommunity.info/Data_Science/Data_Science_for_the_HHS_IDEA_LAB)

• USDA (http://semanticommunity.info/Data_Science/USDA_Data_Science_MOOC)

• Eastern Foundry (http://www.eastern-foundry.com/)

And provide MOOCs/Meetups for training and networking.
