Verizon Selects Palo Alto for Data Analytics Lab

Verizon has selected Palo Alto, California as the primary site for a newly created data analytics team and lab that will provide strategic direction for data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine-learning activities.

"With the large base of big data and analytics talent in Silicon Valley, we are looking for the best and the brightest individuals who want the challenge of working on cutting-edge technologies," said Verizon Chief Data Scientist Ashok N. Srivastava. "We are working in a startup environment, but inside a large corporation, and there are very few such opportunities like this today. We have the opportunity to build intelligent systems based on recent advances in large-scale machine learning, analytics and the powerful computing technologies available today."
