Introduction to Data Science – free online course at Syracuse iSchool
The Syracuse iSchool perspective approaches data science with a view of the full data life cycle. This free course starts in late February, lasting four weeks, and enrollment is limited to the first 500 students, so hurry!
As the world's data grow exponentially, organizations across all sectors, including government and not-for-profit, need to understand, manage and use big, complex data sets-known as Big Data, a term spreading through forward-thinking business dialogue and building job market demand.
Data science is the answer to optimizing (or, for starters, simply dealing with) Big Data. However, the iSchool's distinct perspective approaches data science with a view of the full data life cycle, going beyond what most discuss as data analytics.
Using Dr. Jeffrey Stanton's eBook, An Introduction to Data Science as a guide, participants will ramp up on the most popular open source data science tool, the R open source statistical analysis and visualization system.
This opportunity is free of charge and begins in late February, lasting four weeks. Enrollment in this open online course will be limited to the first 500 students to ensure a high quality experience for all.
