Online Training LEARNING PATH: Statistics and Data Mining for Data Science
Data Science is an ever-evolving field. Data Science includes techniques and theories extracted from statistics, computer science, and machine learning. This video learning path will be your companion as you master the various data mining and statistical techniques in data science. The first part of this course introduces you to the concept of data science, and explains the steps to analyse data and identify which summary statistics are relevant to the type of data you are summarizing. You will also be introduced to the idea of inferential statistics, probability, and hypothesis testing. You will then learn you will learn how to perform and interpret the results of basic statistical analyses such as chi-square, independent and paired sample t-tests, one-way ANOVA, etc. as well as using graphical displays such as bar charts and scatter plots. The latter part of this course provides an overview of the various types of projects data scientists usually encounter. You will be introduced to the three methods (statistical, decision tree, and machine learning) with which you can perform predictive modelling. You will explore segmentation modelling to learn the art of cluster analysis, and will work with association modelling to perform market basket analysis using real-world examples. By the end of this Learning Path, you will gain a firm knowledge on data analysis, data mining, and statistical analysis and be able to implement these powerful techniques on your data with ease.

Investing in yourself through Learning
As a society, we spend hundreds of billions of dollars measuring the return on our financial assets. Yet, at the same time, we still haven’t found convincing ways of measuring the return on our investments in developing people.
And I get it: If my bank account pays me 1% a year, I can measure it to the penny. We’ve been collectively trained to expect neat and precise ROI calculations on everything, so when it’s applied to something as seemingly squishy as how effectively people are learning in the workplace, the natural inclination is to throw up our hands and say it can’t be done. But we need to figure this out. In a world where skills beat capital, the winners and losers of the next 30 years will be determined by their ability to attract and develop great talent.
Fortunately, corporate learning & development (L&D), like most business functions, is evolving quickly. We can embrace some level of ambiguity and have rigor when measuring the ROI of learning. It just might look a little different than an M.B.A. would expect to see in an Excel model.
