Course Introduction

The practice of Data Analytics across industries require data mining, machine learning, and computational modelling skills.
For example, Industries like Telcos use Machine Learning and Computational techniques to identify customer behaviours and offer targeted campaigns and products. Financial services uses Machine Learning and Computational techniques for identification of Fraud and prediction of loan default and Manufacturing industry uses Machine Learning and Computational techniques for Preventive Maintenance and Inventory Optimization. Our aim is to equip participants with the ability to identify and utilise appropriate algorithmic techniques to solve relevant business problems
