Course Summary: Data Science & Machine Learning on Big Data

Our Data Science and Machine Learning fully immersive cohort is an 8 week course.

Decision science is the brains behind big data analytics. It's not a new field; people have been doing decision science for decades. In the "old days" data was limited, hence complex algorithms were needed to extract useful insights from the data. Given the shift in the data paradigm, we no longer need very complex algorithms. Instead, we need to run simple stuff at scale.

At the end of the day, data science is all about counting smart. In this course, we will learn the essential coding skills for Data Science, implement various industry standard algorithms on large datasets and learn to communicate the results through strong visualizations. And, all the while, we will keep it simple.
Decision Science is a mix of Computer Science, Statistics, and Management Skills. In this bootcamp, we will focus on Computer Science (C) and Statistics (S).
