Data science is a field that has exploded in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. Companies across industries are increasingly relying on data to inform their decision-making, and skilled data scientists are in high demand. In this comprehensive course, you'll learn the foundational skills and techniques you need to succeed in this exciting field.
You'll start by exploring the role of a data scientist and the lifecycle of data science efforts within an organization. Then, you'll dive into the technical skills you need, such as using Python and its relevant libraries for data analysis and visualization, preprocessing unstructured data, and building AI/ML models.
You'll also explore key machine learning algorithms, including linear regression, decision tree classifiers, and clustering algorithms. And, you'll learn how to apply these techniques to real-world problems, such as predicting customer churn and building recommendation engines.
Throughout the data science training, you'll have the opportunity to work on hands-on exercises and projects, allowing you to practice your skills and build your portfolio. By the end of the course, you'll have a deep understanding of the data science process, the tools and techniques used by data scientists, and the ability to apply these skills to real-world problems.
