Join this workshop on Data Science with R to gain the skills you need to get started with data science, including statistical and numerical methods and R. You will also learn about visualising data, big data environments and how to interact with linked data in R. Upon completion of this Data Science workshop, you will have an understanding of relevant languages and tools.
As there is a rush to hire data scientists these days, there is a coincident rush to update resumes to include the term "Data Scientist". Unfortunately, like most types of science, it is less a single topic and more a multi-disciplinary way of thinking, inquiring and communicating. Individuals do not need to know everything about the field, but teams should be composed of individuals who collectively do. Attending this workshop won't make you a data scientist overnight, but you will learn to be one in time and will have a study plan for moving forward in this field.
Learn how to:
Apply the following skills to start your progression to become a Data Scientist:
- Machine learning
- Programming languages (R, Julia, Python)
- Open source Data Science Tools
- Big Data
- Linked Data
