Want to learn Data Science? We recommend that you start with this learning path. Dust off your lab-coat and stretch out your fingers and get ready for the journey of a lifetime that will have you see the everyday through a new lens. Looking at mundane events becomes interesting from the speed of your windshield wipers wiping off the rain to the rate of plant growth in ditches along highways under different conditions. As the study that leads into all things pertinent to humans in present, this path is a must for all who have even the slightest interest in this field. This learning path currently consists of one course that introduces you to Data Science from a practitioner point of view, to courses that discuss topics such as data compilation, preparation and modeling throughout the life-cycle of data science from basic concepts and methodologies to advanced algorithms. It also discusses how to get some practical knowledge with open source tools. Come along and start your journey to receiving the following badges: Data Science Foundations.



Aspiring Data Scientists





Data Science Fundamentals Courses

Introduction to Data Science

Introduction to Data Science

About the course
The art of uncovering the insights and trends in data has been around since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians used census data to increase efficiency in tax collection and they accurately predicted the flooding of the Nile river every year. Since then, people working in data science have carved out a unique and distinct field for the work they do, this field is data science. In this course, we will meet some data science practitioners and we will get an overview of what data science is today.
