- [Voiceover] This course is for those who are interested in knowing more about data science careers, but not sure of how to get started. If you're excited about the prospect of working in data mining and analytics, big data, machine learning, and data visualization, I strongly encourage you to watch this course. The goal of this course is to clearly define data science, provide you with insight into the data science marketplaces, and outline the specific skills you'll need to master as a data scientist.
Additionally, this course will provide an overview of the certification opportunities and future technical trends you need to be aware of throughout your journey towards becoming a data scientist.
Jungwoo Ryoo is a professor of information science and technology at Penn State. Here he reviews the history of data science and analytics, explores which markets are using big data the most, and reveals the five main skills areas: data mining, machine learning, natural language processing (NLP), statistics, and visualization. This leads to a discussion of the five biggest career opportunities, the four leading industry-recognized certifications available, and the most exciting emerging technologies. Along the way, Jungwoo discusses the importance of ethics and professional development, and provides pointers to online resources for learning more.
