Kickstart: Creating Business Value with Data Science



Course details:

Join Teresa, chief of data science at Snapcart and former associate director of consumer and market knowledge at P&G in this workshop as we learn how data is becoming the new currency in the increasingly competitive business landscape.

Take a peek into the inner workings on one of the region’s most rapidly growing data science team,  and learn how Teresa and her team built a machine learning stack to harness, manage and analyze Snapcart’s data.

In this final part of this workshop, we explore the statistical ideas behind “intelligent” features we use and love everyday: automatic text completion, predictive algorithms, spam filters etc.

The big technology trend is to make systems intelligent and data is the raw material. ~ Amod Malviya, CTO at Flipkart

Kickstart Series

An introductory workshop for aspiring data scientists and entrepreneurs

Workshops in our KICKSTART series are tailored to casual programmers and non-programmers that are taking their first steps into data science. It assumes no prior knowledge or academic background, and attendees will be introduced to the beautiful art of writing R / Python code to produce data visualization and simple regression models.

Students are encouraged to bring along their laptop and download the course materials beforehand if they wish to follow along the Code Along exercises. The workshop has a gentle learning slope that is designed with non-technical professionals and academics in mind.

Note: Workshops in the KICKSTART series follow a structured course, and re-use many of previous materials from earlier KICKSTART workshops. If you have attended a KICKSTART data science workshop in the past and would like to be exposed to more intermediate-level data science education materials, consider signing up for an Algoritma Membership or attend our Data Science Fundamentals workshops (3-day):

You can obtain a free entry to our KICKSTART series workshops with an active membership. Non-subscribers are welcomed to participate at a cost of IDR50,000.
