A Data Science Central Community
NYC Data Science Academy partners with Dataiku, the developer of the predictive analytics platform Data Science Studio (DSS)
New York, NY: Dataiku, the software developer behind Data Science Studio (DSS), an all-in-one platform that lets users convert raw data into actionable business predictions, has announced a partnership with the NYC Data Science Academy. Beginning next week, the institution will use the DSS software to teach one of its courses. Dataiku data scientists will also be performing several guest lectures to help train the next generation of data scientists.
“The partnership with Dataiku is very exciting to us,” says Vivian Zhang, founder and CTO of NYC Data Science Academy. “We have always focused on our students developing strong technical skills. The trend though is for data scientists to also be skilled in the impactul interpretation of findings using automated data analytics and machine learning toolkits. We are excited to be leaders in this aspect of the data scientist’s education.”
During its 12-week full-time Data Science Bootcamp, students analyze an immense amount of data. Dataiku’s DSS will now be used to enhance the experience. Dataiku expert data scientists will be on hand to guest lecture courses and help guide projects for students.
This initiative complements Dataiku's vision of a world where all businesses, whatever industry or size, can produce their own data-driven strategies by converting raw data into business impacting forecasts.
“We're very excited about this partnership with NYC Data Science Academy. It's another great step towards bringing the efficient practice of advanced analytics techniques to aspiring data scientists. We expect that their feedback will be invaluable as we continue to develop the best possible platform for collaborative data science," the company said in a statement.
