About the Course

Despite the recent increase in computing power and access to data over the last couple of decades, our ability to use the data within the decision making process is either lost or not maximized at all too often, we don't have a solid understanding of the questions being asked and how to apply the data correctly to the problem at hand. This course has one purpose, and that is to share a methodology that can be used within data science, to ensure that the data used in problem solving is relevant and properly manipulated to address the question at hand. Accordingly, in this course, you will learn: - The major steps involved in tackling a data science problem. - The major steps involved in practicing data science, from forming a concrete business or research problem, to collecting and analyzing data, to building a model, and understanding the feedback after model deployment. - How data scientists think!...

Very interesting course. It shed a light on what the structured approach really is. It's worth to pause for a moment with every step of the methodology and think how to apply it in real life. Thanks!

The course was very informative I just wish it went into a little more detail of the statistical tests used in the methodologies.

It's quite clear and interesting course. What lack is a reference to additional reading to give more overview about the subject.

It would be great if it's possible to add labs with predictive and descriptive models to this course (not only classification).

The case study used was difficult to understand.

The lab tutorial too were not detailed.

However the course is very interesting .

Examples shared to explain the methodology could have been a bit easy so every domain person can perceive it equally well.

the final assignment is too open-ended. no exact questions and answers. everything is left to understanding of your peers.

Methodology is clear. I liked the Python exercise with the recipes. I could see how it could apply to other industries.

Well-structured course with crystal clear explanations. Case study is intriguing. However lectures are still a bit dry.

The example of Congestive Heart Failure given in video to explain data science methodology is difficult to understand.

I feel we need slightly more case study, not enough case study example! So, understanding the meaning "methodology".

It gave a nice overview of how things flow in a data scientist mind. Provides a framework to think approach problems.

Peer-reviewed exercises often result in inconsistent feedback! The course requires a more rigorous method of grading.

Buen curso aunque a mi parecer un poco monótono y repetitivo a veces. No tenía muy claras las explicaciones a veces.

I found it difficult to understand the Data understanding step in the course.

Examples can be little in normal terms

This course should have been in the later stages. It is too early to understand all what the instructor has to say.
