If you want to become a data scientist, this is the course to begin with. Using open source tools, it covers all the concepts necessary to move through the entire data science pipeline, and whether you intend to continue working with open source tools, or later opt for proprietary services, this course will give you the foundation you need to assess which options best suit your needs.

You Will Learn How To

  • Translate business questions into Machine Learning problems to understand what your data is telling you
  • Explore and analyse data from the Web, Word Documents, Email, Twitter feeds, NoSQL stores, Relational Databases and more, for patterns and trends relevant to your business
  • Build Decision Tree, Logistic Regression and Naïve Bayes classifiers to make predictions about your customers’ future behaviours as well as other business critical events
  • Use K-Means and Hierarchical Clustering algorithms to more effectively segment your customer market or to discover outliers in your data
  • Discover hidden customer behaviours from Association Rules and Build Recommendation Engines based on behavioural patterns
  • Use biologically-inspired Neural Networks to learn from observational data as humans do
  • Investigate relationships and flows between people, computers and other connected entities using Social Network Analysis

Important Course Information

Recommended Experience:

There's no expectations regarding specific platforms except basic familiarity with a Windows environment.

Who Should Attend:

It’s designed for beginners, technical and non-technical.
