Data Science for Business Innovation   


The Data Science for Business Innovation nano-course is a compendium of the must-have expertise in data science for executives and middle-management to foster data-driven innovation. The course explains what Data Science is and why it is so hyped.

You will learn:
* the value that Data Science can create
* the main classes of problems that Data Science can solve
* the difference is between descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics
* the roles of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

From a more technical perspective, the course covers supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised methods, and explains what can be obtained with classification, clustering, and regression techniques. It discusses the role of NoSQL data models and technologies, and the role and impact of scalable cloud-based computation platforms. All topics are covered with example-based lectures, discussing use cases, success stories, and realistic examples.
