If you want to learn about the latest data software and how it can be used to benefit your organisation, this is the session for you. Discover the tools available and how you can use these to gain insights that will help shape your organisation.

The ‘Branch out in STEM’ programme is fully funded, meaning there’s no cost to the participant. This is possible thanks to funding from the European Social Fund and the delivery partners, which include the University of Derby, Nottingham Trent University, Derby College, Nottingham College, East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, Enable, Inspire and the Workers’ Educational Association.

What is this session about?

Possibly the topic that most people will think of when considering data science is machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). This course explores how machine learning and AI can be used to process data and gain valuable insights for your organisation. The session will look at toolchains available for processing and analysing data such as Apache Spark. Other toolsets commonly available in the cloud will also be explored, such as those developed by IBM and Microsoft. The course will provide high-level insight into what is needed to make the most of the available tools and what can be gained from using them.
