Introduction to Data Science Online Course

In the era of digitization, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) offers a huge potential to automate business routines, enable businesses in making smart decisions, understand the market better, and align market resources in an effective way.
Before realizing the benefits of AI/ML, organizations have to embark on a long journey of identifying relevant use cases (where AI and ML can be helpful), designing the appropriate analytical solutions, implementing the prescribed solutions at organization level, and imbibing the solution’s output for strategic/operational activities in the organization.
Each of the aforementioned tasks require a variety of skills spanning from technical skills and domain knowledge to creative thinking.
