You can only Google so much, but when you’ve got the access to the data scientists that are here, it just makes things so much easier. It seems like science fiction right now to a lot of people when you mention machine learning they think you’re talking about something that is unattainable and it’s really not the case. It’s just a matter of getting down and learning this stuff and then bringing it forth. Given time, I totally think I’m ready to continue to apply data science to my profession.
It was a great experience for increasing the expertise on data science. The abstract concepts were explained well and always focused on real applications and business cases. The pace was adjusted as needed to let everyone follow the topics. Week was intense as there are many topics to cover but schedule was well managed to optimize people attention.
Data Science Dojo did a great job building the right curriculum that focuses both on depth and breadth. And it just gives you the right level of information so that you can go back and apply that to your day to day work.
