Applied Data Science

About This Course

Applied Data Science program was designed specifically for individuals who want to go in depth in advance topics in the Data Science field. This program is optimized to be the continuation for students who have gone through our Data Science Essential program in the past. At the end of the program, students will be able to perform data scraping, analyze and deploy the model in the form of a web application such as a shopping recommendation engine similar to what's being implemented in modern marketplace like Amazon, Lazada and Shopee.


Learning Objectives

  • Able to implement standard regression and classification methods, as well as to understand concepts including, overfitting, underfitting, bias, optimization, regularisation and parameter tuning.
  • Able to dissect the mathematics behind standard machine learning models, train, validate and test models and evaluate said models for accuracy.



Target Audience

Engineers, Business Development, Finance, Marketing Professionals, Software, and IT professionals
