Data Science
The program begins with an overview of Digital Transformation and covers all the phases of the Data Science process from Data Cleansing, Data Manipulation, Data Integration, Data Wrangling, Descriptive Analytics and Visualization to Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning Models using R, Python and Tableau.
Since the base foundation of Statistics and Mathematics is required for Data Science and Machine Learning, the course also focuseson laying astrong foundation on Statistics covering Descriptive Statistics, Inferential Statistics, Hypothesis testing and Exploratory Data Analysis.
Special attention is also given in understanding how the Machine Learning models work in the backend.
The course also helps you understand the methodology and framework in which the data science projects are handled and the way the data science teams are managed. A comparative study with all other Project Management methodologies would also be taken up as part of the course.
The course will help you to launch your career in the field of data science and take up roles of data scientist, data analyst, machine learning experts deploying various machine learning algorithms to solve real time complex business problems.
What is Data Science and Machine Learning?
Data science is a term used for dealing with big data that includes data collection, cleansing, preparation and analysis for various purposes. A data scientist collects data from multiple sources and after analysis applies predictive analysis or machine learning and sentiment analysis to extract the critical information from the data sets. These data scientists analyse and understand the data from business perspective and give useful insights and accurate predictions that can be used while taking critical business decisions.
Data science covers a wide array of dataoriented technologies including SQL, Python, R, and Hadoop, etc.
Data Science stitches together a bunch of ideas/ algorithms drawn from machine learning to create a solution and in doing so borrows a lot of ideas from traditional statistics, domain expertise and basic mathematics. In this way, data science is the process of solving a use case, providing a solution as opposed to machine learning that is an important cog in that solution.
Machine learning can be defined as the practice of using algorithms to use data, learn from it and then forecast future trends for that topic. Traditional machine learning software comprised of statistical analysis and predictive analysis that are used to spot patterns and catch hidden insights based on perceived data.
It is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning focuses on the development of computer programs that can access data and use it learn for themselves.
Machine learning tasks are typically classified into three broad categories, depending on the nature of the learning "signal" or "feedback" available to a learning system. There are 3 types of Machine Learning Algorithms.
 1. Supervised Learning
 2. Unsupervised Learning
 3. Reinforcement Learning
List of Common Machine Learning Algorithms
Here is the list of commonly used machine learning algorithms. These algorithms can be applied to almost any data problem:
 1. Linear Regression
 2. Logistic Regression
 3. Decision Tree
 4. SVM
 5. Naive Bayes
 6. KNN
 7. KMeans
 8. Random Forest
 9. Dimensionality Reduction Algorithms
 10. Gradient Boosting algorithms
 11. GBM
 12. XGBoost
 13. LightGBM
 14. CatBoost
Who is a Data scientist?
Data scientists are responsible for discovering insights from massive amounts of structured and unstructured data to help shape or meet specific business needs and goals. The data scientist role is becoming increasingly important as businesses rely more heavily on data analytics to drive decisionmaking and lean on automation and machine learning as core components of their IT strategies.
Industry where Data Science is being used?
Life sciences and Health care, Retail, Banking, Telecom, FMCG, Banking, eCommerce, Manufacturing, etc.
Participants can further specialise into different verticals based on their domain experience – HR Analytics, Marketing Analytics, Social Network Analytics, Health care Analytics, Fraud Analytics
Machine learning aids data science by providing a suit of algorithms for data modelling, decision making and even data preparation
Where machine learning  at its core  is about the use and development of these learning algorithms, data science is more about the extraction of knowledge from data to answer particular question or solve particular problems.
Machine learning is often a big part of a "data science" project. It is often heavily used for exploratory analysis and discovery (clustering algorithms) and building predictive models (supervised learning algorithms). However, in data science, you often also worry about the collection, wrangling, and cleaning of your data (i.e., data engineering), and eventually, you want to draw conclusions from your data that help you solve a particular problem.
