We maintain CSET’s vast data holdings, which include nearly 60 analysis-ready datasets, offering unprecedented coverage of the emerging technology ecosystem. The team develops and deploys the latest methods in data science and machine learning to clean, link, classify, and otherwise enhance data for analytic use, as well as support the curation and annotation of original datasets - from surveys to scraped online information. Resulting research and tools are presented in CSET Data Briefs and Data Snapshots, public repositories, academic conferences and publications, and interactive tools.
