Data science, big data, machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence – we are surrounded with these buzzwords almost every day. In this course you will find out what is really hidden beneath them. We are surrounded by data and we also contribute to its production.

The course covers both business and technical aspects of data science. It introduces the fields and explains how to progress from business problem to solution prototype, to model in production, and how to do it using appropriate tools and technologies. During the course, we also discuss ways of communicating progress and results back to the customer and the importance of model interpretability.
