About This Class
Data Scientist is the “sexiest job of the 21st century”, according to Harvard Business Review.
“Big data lives in the cloud. It knows what we do.” – Pointy-haired boss. Despite the hype surrounding big data and where it’s stored, data scientists know that the size of your data doesn’t matter. It’s all about what you do with it. This workshop represents the first step towards improving your data literacy and seeing through the hype and buzzwords.
The goal of this workshop is to give you a taste of data science. In addition to defining what it actually is, the main tools in the data scientist’s toolbox will be introduced through examples and case studies. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to phrase problems in data science terms, and approach their solution in a structured and rigorous manner.
