In a financial institution, large amounts of data is generated in the form of banking transactions, consumer behaviour, market price fluctuations, and economic data. Data science can be used to explore such big data in order to mitigate risks and enhance risk assessment as well as actionable intelligence through the predictive power of Machine Learning.
The ‘Creating a Digital HR Foundation’ skill booster masterclass empowers you to build the technical skills and knowledge you need to support HR drive business outcomes in a digital age.You will also develop a solid understanding of what the term ‘digital’ means for a progressive HR function and how to create a successful digital HR strategy for your organisation.
We define Big Data In Marketing as a marketing process that is automated to such a degree that it can be steered by setting a business objective in a marketing software system. This implies that the marketing system should be intelligent and knowledge-able enough to understand a high-level objective, such as the acquisition of new customers or revenue maximization, to plan and execute a sequence of business actions, such as an adver-tisement campaign or price adjustment, with the aim of achiev-ing the objective, and to learn from the results to correct and optimize the actions if needed. In this course, we also use the term programmatic to refer to highly automated marketing software systems and services, and the terms algorithmic and programmatic are used interchangea-bly in most contexts.
This course aims to teach you importance of analytics in this new era of rapidly growing innovation and technologies. From identifying a business problem to building a predictive analytics model, you will taken through every possible stage of Data Science Life Cycle. While we teach you state-of-art machine learning algorithms, we take you through the tricks of fine tuning, avoiding bias and variance. Each domain has its own way of solving analytical problems, although the machine learning algorithms are the same, what differs is Feature Extraction.
We will teach you how to extract features for domains like Banking, Telecom and Retail. Curse of dimensionality is something that bothers data scientists a lot, we will teach you how to engineer the features and reduce the dimensions or pick the best. At the end of this course, you will acquire skills to even compete in Hackathons and Data Science platforms like Kaggle.
This course will take 8 weeks and you will master data science concepts from data science life cycle to neural networks.

As data scientists, we want to spend our time analyzing problems and rather than dealing with corporate politics. How can we do that when there is often a rift between executives and their data science teams. This can lead to a lack of trust, poor implementation and support of projects and thus, failed data science teams. Register from this link to reserve your seat
