€575,00 p.p.

The mastercourse ‘Data Innovation beyond the Hype’ held by the Data and AI Competence Lab of Sirris (EluciDATA Lab) provides pragmatic and industry-oriented sessions on data-driven innovation. The mastercourse cycle consists of six general sessions, covering the different steps of the data science workflow. Additionally, the Lab has developed a set of new topic specific sessions focusing on industrial applications of data science and artificial intelligence.

In this two-part hands-on session, companies will be coached through the process of solving a data-driven business challenge relevant to their own domain.

Session 2a: Bring your own data innovation challenge: proposal (17/10/2019)

In the first part of the session, participants are invited to bring a business problem and a description of their available data which could be used to solve this problem. Participants will first present their business challenge to the group and take part in an interactive discussion, to identify opportunities to leverage their data. Subsequently, working with the EluciDATA Lab experts, participants will develop a plan for analysing the data, in order to answer specific questions relevant to their use case. At the end of this session, participants will have a structured analysis plan.

Session 2b: Bring your own data innovation challenge: execution (05/11/2019)

In this second part of the session, with the guidance of the EluciDATA Lab experts, participants will carry out the analysis of their datasets according to the analysis plan they developed in the first session. An interactive computing environment using Jupyter notebooks and standard Python libraries will be made available, along with some additional custom tools designed to speed up analysis. At the end of this session, participants will have progressed towards extracting valuable insights from their data which could be applied towards their specific business challenges.
