The data science team functions like a startup within a secure, established company. The team was formally started in 2013 after one predictive analytics product successfully entered the marketplace. Our Data Scientists typically hold Ph.D. or Masters level degrees in Math, Statistics, Data Science, Computer Science and other related fields; who can predict variables of interest before those variables are known. The analysts take this prediction and turn it into business value. The team supports work across CCC and is currently working on one of the most strategic initiatives of the company, which is essentially building the AI capabilities for products.
