Why Learn Data Science?

Have you ever shopped online and found advertisements strangely related to what you’ve been searching for on facebook and other websites continuously for a week? Or say, you’re texting with your friend and the keyboard suggests to you the exact words that you were going to use in your sentence? How does YouTube show all your favourite videos on your homescreen?

In business, Data Science is successfully adding value to all business models by using statistics and deep learning to make better decisions and improve hiring. It is also being used to crunch historical data and predict possible situations or risk so that we can work on avoiding them.

Now imagine your routine without the above mentioned facilities? Such a reality could be a huge inconvenience. As such, data science plans to be at the core of the digital world.

    Demand for Big Data jobs are expected to increase exponentially in the future

According to the Info‑communications Media Development Authority (IMDA); with advancement in technology, there has been a growing demand for talents in the tech and IT space.

At our current pace, our local talent supply is unable to handle the growing demand and Singapore is expected to be short of 30,000 information technology (ICT) professionals by 2020.

Take your first step into Data Science to advance your career at Hackwagon Academy with our cohorts being opened on a rolling basis.

I completed Data Science 101 at Hackwagon Academy in July. Course was great, team was very friendly and supportive. I think it was really useful to beginners in programming as instructor explained everything very detailed. There were some minor shortcomings, but overall environment and course quality were very good.
Waiting for advanced DS 🙂
