USDA’s 2024-2025 Data and AI Cohort


Come join the USDA’s 2024-2025 Data and AI Cohort. This is our second year, and we're expanding to include AI and automation projects. Be a part of how USDA deploys data and AI.

What you'll do

You will be working on one of several projects, either at the USDA level or in one of the 8 Mission Areas that make up USDA.

Exploratory dashboard development and analytics- Work on projects to deliver on the execution of the USDA Data Strategy. Develop new Tableau dashboards or make improvements to existing ones. Our public-facing dashboards help the public understand USDA's investment in their hometowns.

Develop and Test AI Products – Leverage machine learning models and natural language processing techniques that can be used for multiple projects. Test models not just for accuracy, but whether they can stand up to scrutiny.

Deploy Automation and Testing – Leverage automation techniques to continuously monitor and test public-facing dashboards, measure usage of public-facing dashboards and datasets on, and develop scripts to identify and correct broken links.

Research AI Tools and Capabilities – Desk research on new tools and technologies to enable AI use cases. You may also be included to test new AI capabilities in products for potential USDA use.

What you'll learn

You will learn and refine technical skills in data and AI that are applicable to a career as a data scientist, data analyst, and data engineer. You'll also learn how a large federal organization deploys enterprise data and AI initiatives.

Who we are

We are the USDA Enterprise Data Management Center. Led by the USDA’s Chief Data and AI Officer, our vision is to realize the full potential of USDA’s data and workforce to make better decisions, maximize the impact of citizen-facing programs, and provide the public with easier access to data that can solve national problems and spark innovation.
