Data Science using Python

Every business wants intelligence on the industry in which it operates. This course will help you build systems that permit your business to make informed decisions based on accurate data.


Data science is an interdisciplinary field that uses statistical modelling to uncover patterns in data that lead to key insights about businesses and their operations, and can test how changes to particular variables will influence markets, performance and other factors.

In this course you will learn the maths behind data science, how to use Python to model, analyse and visualise data, and how to apply machine learning and deep learning.

You will also learn which tools to use for enterprise-level data science projects, and tackle your own data science project.
