What does a data scientist do?
In their Harvard Business Review article, “Data Scientist: The sexiest job of the 21st century” Thomas H Davenport and D J Patil, say that “what data scientists do is make discoveries while swimming in data. It’s their preferred method of navigating the world around them. At ease in the digital realm, they are able to bring structure to large quantities of formless data and make analysis possible. They identify rich data sources, join them with other, potentially incomplete data sources, and clean the resulting set. In a competitive landscape where challenges keep changing and data never stop flowing, data scientists help decision makers shift from ad hoc analysis to an ongoing conversation with data”.
The program aims at equipping you with the tools, techniques and skills to enable you make the transition from statistical modelling based business analyst roles to advanced data scientist roles.
You will be able to store and analyse unstructured and semi structured data, identify meaningful patterns, and predict accurate outcomes using advanced machine learning, deep learning techniques by harnessing cognitive computing capabilities on massively scalable clusters residing on the cloud platforms.
