Content and procedure

The one-day seminar introduces users from the specialist field (e.g. business analysts) to the approach and methods of data science. Essential steps of data preparation, data analysis and presentation of results are presented in compact individual sections. This qualifies the course participants

- To formulate analysis problems

- To prepare data

- To identify patterns in data

- To lead the dialog with data scientists

- To interpret results from data labs

On the basis of concrete data and with the help of practical examples, the procedure of the data discovery process is illustrated and made tangible. The manageable number of participants makes it possible to clarify individual questions of the workshop participants.
