The 2021 Department of Navy Data Challenge asked teams from across the Department of Navy to find insights from Federal government contracts opportunities data. As part of the process, Naval Information Warfare Center NIWC Pacific designed a novel machine learning pipeline that incorporates methods from Natural Language Processing and Topological Data Analysis for insight extraction. Additionally, NIWC Pacific developed a vulnerability assessment metric using information extracted from contracts award data. The results from the challenge are displayed through a prototype dashboard.
