Introduction to Data Science

Data Scientists
Data Scientists perform data science. They use technology and skills to increase awareness, clarity and direction for those working with data. The data scientist role is here to accommodate the rapid changes that occur in our modern day environment and are bestowed the task of minimising the disruption that technology and data is having on the way we work, play and learn. Data Scientists don’t just present data, data scientists present data with an intelligence awareness of the consequences of presenting that data.

“Data Scientist – The sexiest job in the 21st century”, Harvard Business Review, October 2012 
Analytics professionals and data scientists will be most sought after as digital data is growing exponentially. The rate of explosion of data from India will be double that of the world average in coming years. McKinsey estimates that India would need 200,000 data scientists in the next few years. 

How To Do Data Science
The three components involved in data science are organising, packaging and delivering data (the OPD of data). Organising is where the physical location and structure of the data is planned and executed. Packaging is where the prototypes are build, the statistics is performed and the visualisation is created. Delivering is where the story gets told and the value is obtained. However what separates data science from all other existing roles is that they also need to have a continual awareness of What, How, Who and Why. A data scientist needs to know what will be the output of the data science process and have a clear vision of this output. A data scientist needs to have a clearly defined plan on how will this output be achieved within the restraints of available resources and time. A data scientist needs to deeply understand who the people are that will be involved in creating the output. And most of all the data scientist must know why there is a motivation behind attempting to manifest the creative visualisation.

The 3 step OPD Data Science Process
Step 1. Organise Data.
Organising data involves the physical storage and format of data and incorporated best practices in data management.

Step 2. Package Data. 
Packaging data involves logically manipulating and joining the underlying raw data into a new representation and package.

Step 3. Deliver Data.
Delivering data involves ensuring that the message the data has is being accessed by those that need to hear it.

Plus, at all steps have answers to these questions.

  • What is being created?
  • How will it be created?
  • Who will be involved in creating it?
  • Why is it to be created?
  • Why should we build models or use data to run a business: The edge of evidence over intuition
  • What kind of models do data scientists build and where they do not work
  • When you want a prediction
  • How do you estimate how much to pay and how long to wait o How do you precisely define for the teams what to deliver
  • How do you evaluate how good their prediction are
  • When does big unstructured data become really important
  • When you want to build an analytics group
  • What software or hardware should you invest in Several engagement models and the ideal teams for each
  • Business plan: Each team develops a business plan for setting up an analytics organization, and creates a complete business plan and presents.
  • Case analysis: Participants would be divided into separate teams and would be given several high level business problems. They have to identify the prediction problems with high ROI and provide concise requirements

Course Summary

This hands-on course is suitable for software engineers, data analysts, and statisticians. It is problem-driven and focuses on helping participants understand what data scientists do, the problems they solve, and their methods. By taking a practical approach to the subject, including multiple hands-on exercises, participants will leave the course with skills they can immediately apply to real-world problems.

Duration
2 days

You Will Learn

  • Describe the role and responsibilities of a data scientist
  • Explain several ways in which data scientists create value for organizations across many industries
  • Locate and acquire data from diverse sources
  • Use transformation and normalization techniques to produce accurate, useful data sets
  • Determine the most appropriate type of analysis to perform for a given problem
  • Be able to implement an automated recommendation system
  • Develop, evaluate and refine scoring systems for recommenders
  • Understand the considerations involved in working at scale
  • Identify meaningful, actionable and business-oriented results from the analysis

Prerequisites
This course is suitable for Business Analyst, software engineers, data analysts and statisticians with basic knowledge of Apache Hadoop: HDFS, MapReduce, Hadoop Streaming, Apache Hive. Students should have proficiency in a scripting language: Python is strongly preferred, but familiarity with R, Perl or Ruby or c or java is sufficient but not mandatory.

Certification Exam
Following successful completion of the training class, attendees receive a Data Science Essentials practice test. Cloudera training and the practice test together are the best resources to prepare for the certification exam. Data Science Essentials plus the Data Science Challenge constitute the Cloudera Certified Professional: Data Scientist (CCP:DS). Participants are encouraged to prepare for and take both parts of the exam. Learn more about CCP:DS.
