Training is intended for business people who may well be doing what data scientists, or technical developers would be doing - to implement data science solutions!

Data Science may sound frightening and technical, but this training is to have business-minds really understand data, AND identify some tools that make data analytics look like child's play!

Syllabus


Module 1: Introducing Data Scientist Workbench
✪ Data Scientist Workbench (DSWB) Features
✪ Creating a DSWB account
✪ Managing data within My Data
✪ Preparing data with OpenRefine

Module 2: Introducing Jupyter Notebooks
✪ Getting started with Data and Notebooks
✪ Sharing your Jupyter Notebooks and data

One principle of data science is to extract useful knowledge from clean data - to solve a business-problem. May sound obvious, but this involves processes within Data Analytics, namely:
✪ Identifying and Formulating the Problem;
✪ Choosing a method;
✪ Evaluating the solution;
✪ Formulating a Strategy;

Another principle is that some data items can give us information about other data items - this implies finding correlations among variables, in the specific design of data mining procedures.
