The goal of this session is to offer an overview of data science and its opportunities for innovation from an industrial point of view. By means of actual cases from current data innovation projects in several domains, the iterative and creative path from business understanding to data exploitation will be described. Particular attention will be given to the kind of challenges that can be tackled, and the data and skills that you need to have available in order to realise those challenges. Furthermore, some common beliefs about data analytics as a commodity are debunked.
The master course is open to any company that is interested in data innovation as an opportunity for its company and activities. For this session some basic analytic skills (e.g. high level understanding of algebra and interpretation of statistical figures) is a prerequisite.
