Jeremy Yagle Internship Presentation

Jeremy Yagle Internship Presentation

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

This  presentation will provide an overview of my  experience as a graduate  co-op in the NASA Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V)  Program. At  NASA IV&V, my main job responsibility is to work in the  in the area of  Advanced Concepts and Business Development (ACBD),  developing models and  methods to solve specific  NASA mission challenges.  Two of the main goals of my work  are  researching markets to understand the technical challenges of NASA  customers, and identifying technologies that the  IV&V Program should adopt. To  further these goals, I have been working on the design and development  of a strategic  scoring system that provides a quantitative and qualitative  analysis of information technology investments by federal  agencies.  The system incorporates some basic data-mining techniques, including text  analysis and cosine similarity measures,  which are used to analyze  available qualitative data.  Various statistical methods are also used in the  quantitative scoring  approach.  Ultimately, the results will be used to develop strategies for advancing technology at NASA IV&V by  identifying new  business prospects.  In addition to discussing my main  job responsibilities, I will also cover some of the formal  trainings and  other hands-on experiences that I have had since starting a job with  NASA.
