Abstract: In this workshop, we will make use of “low-code” “no-code” platforms to perform some of the common data science tasks, such as data cleaning, exploratory data analysis and machine learning. These tools are good starting points if you’re trying to start a data career, make use of data at work or transition from a data analyst role to a data scientist. The workshop also provides a framework to how to run a data science project end-to-end.
Part 1: Introduction to various roles within the data science industry
Participants will gain insights about the common tasks performed by different roles in the data science industry and the necessary skills involved.
Part 2: Descriptive analytics using Tableau
Participants will learn about the use of exploratory data analysis (EDA) and create data visualizations/ dashboard to present insights.
Part 3: Predictive analytics using Dataiku DSS
Participants will apply machine learning techniques to anticipate/ solve business problems/ questions.
