About the Course

If data is the new ‘Oil’ of the 21th century, data science and machine learning are the ‘engine’ behind it. Learning how to apply and manage data science and basic machine learning techniques is becoming another important skill in the data-driven economy. This course provides the latest concepts, tools and techniques to build and influence the development of a successful data science and machine learning capability. Delivered through an interactive approach utilising the latest tools, participants of this course are exposed to basic techniques of data science, algorithms and machine learning, basic applied statistics and some of the most utilised cloud and open source tools that powers the world of advanced big data analytics. Participants are also exposed to the latest thinking in data strategy and managing data science and analytics teams and projects.

Who Will Benefit

Anyone who wants to understand the role data science and analytics plays in driving competitive advantage in teams and organisations but have not had any (or major) exposure to the field. It can also be beneficial to those who want to pursue a change in career and work more closely with advanced analytics, data science and machine learning capacity but have not had a chance to figure out how to go about it. Lastly, it can benefit anyone who works (or manages a team) in a business or technical role and uses data to answer questions, solve problems or build data-driven solutions but want to have a different perspective in the field.
