Data Science is all about extracting knowledge from data. Data Science is the integration of methods from mathematics, probability models, machine learning, computer programming, statistics, data engineering, pattern recognition and learning, visualization, uncertainty modelling, data warehousing, and high performance computing with the goal of extracting meaning from data and creating data products. This interdisciplinary and cross-functional field leads to decisions that move an organization forward in terms of proposed investment, decisions regarding a product or business strategy.

Data Science is a buzzword, often used interchangeably with analytics or big data. At times, Analytics is synonymous with Data Science, but at times it represents something else. A Data Scientist using raw data to build a predictive behaviour model, falls in to the category of analytics.

Data science is a steadily growing discipline that is driving significant changes across industries and in companies of every size. It is emerging as a critical source for insights for enterprises dealing with massive amounts of data.

1.  Introduction to Data Science with R – Data Analysis Part 1

Part 1 in a in-depth hands-on series of videos introducing the viewer to Data Science using R. The video series illustrates the complete Data Mining project lifecycle via Kaggle’s Titanic 101 competition. All source code from videos are available from GitHub at:….

Regression Analysis:
• Regression analysis mainly focuses on finding a relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables.
• It predicts the value of a dependent variable based on one or more independent variables
• Coefficient explains the impact of changes in an independent variable on the dependent variable.
• Widely used in prediction and forecasting

This lecture provides an overview of the models and techniques we will address throughout the lecture series, we will discuss Business Intelligence topics, predictive analytics, and big data technologies. Finally, we will walk through a simple yet effective example which showcases the potential of predictive analytics in a business context.


6.  How To Become A Data Scientist – SF Data Science

Ryan Orban of Zipfian Academy and Dennis O’Brien of Idle Games talking about becoming a data scientist.


7.  Data Science – Eindhoven University of Technology

Data Science is a new engineering discipline and the main driver for innovation in the years to come. The data scientist will be the engineer of the future and scientific research and innovations will be data driven.

Data is collected about anything at any time, at any place. The ultimate goal is not to collect more data but to turn it into real value. Data can answer questions that have never been asked before. Visualization of data can really help discovering remarkable patterns that were never noticed before.
