Experian Expands In San Diego

Experian said Tuesday afternoon that it is expanding in San Diego, and has opened up a new data and innovation lab in the city to help focused on advanced data analysis processes, research and development. According to Experian, San Diego has become a "hot bed for data scientists", and that it "couldn't find a better place" in the United States for an environment for its data scientists. Experian initially set up its Experian DataLabs offices in San Diego five years ago. The company did not say how many people it now employs at the new facility. Experian provides data and analytics tools to the financial and credit risk, fraud prevention, and other related areas.
