Data Science 101

Room: Parking Lot "L", Bldg: West Science 100, Cornell College, 61 1st Street SW, Mt. Vernon, Iowa, United States, 52314, Virtual:

Data Science is one of the fastest growing disciplines at University level. We see more job postings that require training in data science, more academic appointments in the field, and more courses offered, both online and traditional settings. We are living in an era in which the kind of problems that could be solved using data are driving a huge wave of innovations in various industries. Thus, knowing the basics of data and data analysis has become a fundamental skill that everyone needs, even if they do not want to pursue a degree in computer science, statistics, or data science. Many educational institutions are offering programs and courses in Data science that are geared towards students who may not become data scientists but could still benefit from data literacy skills.
