Course Overview

Data Science is an umbrella term that incorporates multiple disciplines, including data analytics, statistics, computing, machine learning, predictive analytics, text analytics and more. It is a forward-thinking approach that blends data extraction, preparation, exploration and machine learning with the aim of discovering hidden insights and predicting outcomes. Many organisations recognize the importance of Data Science in gaining a competitive edge. So, what skills do data scientists need? How does one get started with a data science project?

 

This course covers the fundamental skills needed to kick-start a data science project by using an open-source programming language. It focuses on how to read, explore, manipulate data and present data using the right visualisations. There will be guided programming and participants will learn how to perform data exploration and analysis techniques to discover new knowledge from data to aid data-driven decisions in an intelligent and informed way.
