INTRODUCTION TO DATA SCIENCE
ABOUT THE COURSE
While data becomes increasingly cheap and ubiquitous, data-savvy professionals who can help derive scientific, economic or social value from it are in short supply. This has led to the emergence of data science, which combines a wide array of skills, along with domain knowledge, to effectively and efficiently describe, predict or prescribe systems and their behavior. Data science was ranked by Glassdoor as the Best Job in America for 2016.
Students will be exposed to critical statistical and probabilistic concepts that underline data science, concurrently with the tools to synthesize end-to-end data products.
