An Introduction to Data Science (with Tom Gadsby)
So you’ve heard of data science, but what exactly is it? And what does a data scientist actually do?
When it comes to decision-making, data is vital.
This is true on a personal level, but absolutely essential on an organizational level—an overwhelming majority of today’s businesses and organizations rely on data-driven decision making and strategic planning in order to achieve their goals.
Data science is a broad discipline, which uses many methods, techniques, and systems to extract useful information from the unfathomably large amount of data that exists around us.
So who deals with this, and how?
If you’ve been wondering what data science is and how it’s used, look no further.
Join CareerFoundry’s very own resident Senior Data Scientist, Tom Gadsby, as he walks you through exactly what data science is from start to finish.
Don’t worry—this live recording is perfect for beginners!
We’ll also be having a Q&A at the end to answer all your burning questions.
Look forward to seeing you there!
