Last week, data science educator Metis launched a new online training, Explore Data Science, which introduces common data science theory and techniques to help programmers, mathematicians, and other technical professionals expand their data science expertise.
Originally created by Booz Allen Hamilton for its team of nearly 600 data science professionals, Explore Data Science is now available exclusively from Metis for $99 for 2 months’ access.
Explore Data Science comes in the form of an interactive game. Participants go at their own pace throughout an overall 40-hour exploration of frequently used data science techniques, advancing from one planet to another as they're actively engaged with real datasets and interactive tasks. They earn points, awards, and badges for completing missions along the way.
Upon completing Explore Data Science, participants will have:
- A working conceptual understanding of the field of data science
- An understanding of using data science to achieve a variety of analytic goals, including next-generation predictive and advisory approaches
- Experience with a wide variety of data science techniques, from Distance Metrics to Genetic Algorithms and lots more in between.
