    Data Science

    Description

    Data scientist is one of the best suited professions to thrive this century. It is digital, programming-oriented, and analytical. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the demand for data scientists has been surging in the job marketplace.     

    However, supply has been very limited. It is difficult to acquire the skills necessary to be hired as a data scientist.  

    And how can you do that?  

    Universities have been slow at creating specialized data science programs. (not to mention that the ones that exist are very expensive and time consuming)  

    Most online courses focus on a specific topic and it is difficult to understand how the skill they teach fit in the complete picture  

    The Solution  

    Data science is a multidisciplinary field. It encompasses a wide range of topics.  

    1. Understanding of the data science field and the type of analysis carried out  
    2. Mathematics  
    3. Statistics  
    4. Python  
    5. Applying advanced statistical techniques in Python  
    6. Data Visualization  
    7. Machine Learning  
    8. Deep Learning  

    Each of these topics builds on the previous ones. And you risk getting lost along the way if you don’t acquire these skills in the right order. For example, one would struggle in the application of Machine Learning techniques before understanding the underlying Mathematics. Or, it can be overwhelming to study regression analysis in Python before knowing what a regression is.  

    So, in an effort to create the most effective, time-efficient, and structured data science training, we created The Data Science Course.  

    We believe this is the first training program in Azerbaijan that solves the biggest challenge to entering the data science field – having all the necessary resources in one place.  

    Moreover, our focus is to teach topics that flow smoothly and complement each other. The course teaches you everything you need to know to become a data scientist at a fraction of the cost of traditional programs (not to mention the amount of time you will save).


    The Skills

    1. Intro to Data and Data Science

    Big data, business intelligence, business analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. We know these buzzwords belong to the field of data science but what do they all mean?     

    Why learn it?

    As a candidate data scientist, you must understand the ins and outs of each of these areas and recognize the appropriate approach to solving a problem. This ‘Intro to data and data science’ will give you a comprehensive look at all these buzzwords and where they fit in the realm of data science.  

    2. Mathematics 

    Learning the tools is the first step to doing data science. You must first see the big picture to then examine the parts in detail.  

    We take a detailed look specifically at calculus and linear algebra as they are the subfields data science relies on.  

    Why learn it?  

    Calculus and linear algebra are essential for programming in data science. If you want to understand advanced machine learning algorithms, then you need these skills in your arsenal.

    3. Statistics 

    You need to think like a scientist before you can become a scientist. Statistics trains your mind to frame problems as hypotheses and gives you techniques to test these hypotheses, just like a scientist.

    Why learn it?  

    This course doesn’t just give you the tools you need but teaches you how to use them. Statistics trains you to think like a scientist.

    4. Python

    Python is a relatively new programming language and, unlike R, it is a general-purpose programming language. You can do anything with it! Web applications, computer games and data science are among many of its capabilities. That’s why, in a short space of time, it has managed to disrupt many disciplines. Extremely powerful libraries have been developed to enable data manipulation, transformation, and visualization. Where Python really shines however, is when it deals with machine and deep learning.

    Why learn it?  

    When it comes to developing, implementing, and deploying machine learning models through powerful frameworks such as scikit-learn, TensorFlow, etc. Python is a must have programming language.  

    5. Advanced Statistics 

    Regressions, clustering, and factor analysis are all disciplines that were invented before machine learning. However, now these statistical methods are all performed through machine learning to provide predictions with unparalleled accuracy. This section will look at these techniques in detail.  

    Why learn it?  

    Data science is all about predictive modelling and you can become an expert in these methods through this ‘advance statistics’ section.  

    6. Machine Learning 

    The final part of the program and what every section has been leading up to is deep learning. Being able to employ machine and deep learning in their work is what often separates a data scientist from a data analyst. This section covers all common machine learning techniques and deep learning methods with TensorFlow.  

    Why learn it?  

    Machine learning is everywhere. Companies like Facebook, Google, and Amazon have been using machines that can learn on their own for years. Now is the time for you to control the machines.
