Data Science has become a popular occupation with Harvard Business Review dubbing it “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century” and McKinsey & Company projecting a global excess demand of 1.5 million new data scientists. This track teaches you the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct sophisticated and systematic analyses of data using the industry’s most adopted programming paradigms, the R and Python languages.
- As a Data Scientist you need a strong foundation in math and statistics, but you do not need to be a math guru. In the first three weeks you will learn all you need to get started on the path towards your DS career, including the R Language..
- You’ve reached an important stage: business intelligence is your daily job as a DS. In weeks 4-7, you will learn the basic machinery behind ML as well as NLP and other instruments allowing you to do data analysis, processing and visualization in the last stage of your training. Do not forget programming! We get you going on Python just for that.
- Learn the frameworks for distributed applications, and how to perform data summarization and ad-hoc analysis of large volumes of data. Real-life case studies will demonstrate the validity of what you have been learning so far.
- We give you a problem and challenge you to provide your own solution, under the guidance of tutors of course.
