The next Data Science cohorts: June 2022
Data science is a complex field: it entails the structuring and analysis of large volumes of data, the application of machine learning to make predictions, the identification of patterns, and the ability to draw conclusions. Data scientists are sought after in business, manufacturing and science. They work with essential tools such as Python and its libraries, including Scikit-Learn and XGBoost, Jupyter Notebook, and SQL. Our mission is to teach you how to use these tools.
