Jim Shannon on technology


Is there anything else you wanted to
mention about your job or about
Reclamation that we didn't ask?
I think the thing that I would reiterate
is that we're working with a lot of
really cool technology at the Bureau of
Reclamation. We're using artificial
intelligence to work with big data just
as Silicon Valley is doing with their
work at Google, Amazon or Microsoft.
We're taking new technologies like unmanned
drones to try and do flyovers to gather
data. That helps feed into our water
resources, computer programs, so that we
can make sound decisions that impact the
lives of the people in the United States.
