As CDO of USDA and the chair of the Federal CDO Council, Ted Kaouk has had a busy year within his own agency and delivering on the Federal Data Strategy governmentwide. The council plans to release 10 data science training program use cases soon, after partnering with the U.S. Digital Service on a joint hiring announcement for data scientists at 10 agencies, including Kaouk’s own, in January. Meanwhile, the council has also worked to address COVID-19 data-sharing challenges between agencies, and Kaouk anticipates agencies will create their first AI inventories later this year. Also on his agenda is developing a framework for coordinating with the other Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act councils for evaluation officers and statistical and privacy officials.
