Workshop [clear filter]
Wednesday, September 6
 

8:30am CDT

Data Science Fundamentals
Data scientists are increasingly taking a central role in business innovation, strategy, and the decision-making process. What makes a data scientist uniquely valuable is their ability to interact with data, gain insight, and communicate useful business intelligence to others. One very powerful tool of the trade is R statistical computing software.

During the R workshop, participants will gain hands on experience with the statistical tools frequently used by data scientists. Using tangible business examples, we will explore data visually and begin with some descriptive statistics and linear modeling concepts. From there the course will progress into more advanced multiple linear models, logistic regression, bootstrapping, simulation, and validation.
