We'll start the course by defining what data science is. We'll cover the data science workflow, and how data science is applied to real-world business problems. We'll finish the chapter by learning about ways to structure your data team to meet your organization's needs.
Now that we understand the data science workflow, we'll dive deeper into the first step: data collection. We'll learn about the different data sources your company can draw from, and how to store that data once it's collected.
In this chapter, we'll discuss ways to explore and visualize data through dashboards. We'll discuss the elements of a dashboard and how to make a directed request for a dashboard. This chapter will also cover making ad hoc data requests and A/B tests, which are a powerful analytics tool that de-risk decision-making.
In this final chapter, we'll discuss the buzziest topic in data science: machine learning! We'll cover supervised and unsupervised machine learning, and clustering. Then, we'll move on to special topics in machine learning, including time series prediction, natural language processing, deep learning, and explainable AI!
