Why join the Machine Learning for Analytics Translators Course?
What will you learn?
Successful implementation of data science products and insights takes more than just the hard skills to do data science. In this course you will learn the foundations to fulfill the vital role of the Analytics Translator.
The analytics translator has some knowledge of machine learning and data science (but not to the technical depth at which the data scientists do their work). They are uniquely able to approach the project from the viewpoint of the business. In this module you will learn enough statistics and machine learning to spot opportunities for such techniques in solving a variety of business problems.
Understanding data science requires an understanding of the underlying statistical concepts. In this module you will be provided with the necessary statistical toolkit. Among others we will cover the probability theory and statistical terms, as well as inferential statistics how to evaluate sample data and how to conduct hypothesis testing.
Machine Learning is the basis of much of data science. We will go into many of the popular algorithms like linear and logistic regression, decision trees, ensembles like random forests, k-nearest neighbors and neural networks. Special focus will be on how to use these in business settings.
You do not need programming skills to follow this module.
During this 4-day course you will acquire:
- A fundamental understanding of Machine Learning methods
- Identifying business opportunities for Machine Learning solutions
- Essential statistical concepts
This course is for business professionals who want to become the crucial link between the business and the data science and analytics teams. Both middle management, as well as people in roles like business analysts or any other role that in some way touches upon the analysis of data will profit greatly from this course.
