We are living in a Data Age. Data is being continuously generated and consumed in various formats and sizes from several varied sources. This data can be a big asset if stored, processed and analysed efficiently with the help of intelligent algorithms. There is growing interest to utilize such data for the improvement of business, health, education, society, etc. There are many ways to process and analyse such data, covering broad areas such as data visualisation, text analysis, predictive models, and recommendations. Effective applications of these techniques can give organisations valuable insights leading to competitive advantage, efficient service delivery and above all higher customer satisfaction. The demand for skilled resources in these fields is also growing day by day.

With this view, CDAC Mumbai is announcing a series of short-term courses in Data Science and Machine Learning. We had conducted a similar series of short-term courses on Data Science in 2016 and 2017, which received overwhelming response for participation.

1. Using R for data visualization and analytics: This course introduces R , a language and environment for Statistical Computing and Visualization. In recent years, R has become very popular due its open source cross-platform nature, robust package repository and strong graphics capabilities.
During the course, one will not only learn about basics of R, but also about techniques of data acquisition and processing. Course will also cover in detail the features of R related to data analysis and visualization.

2. Text Analytics: The course aims to provide learners an understanding of the methods for text analytics. It will cover major techniques for mining and analyzing text data to discover interesting patterns, extract useful knowledge, and support decision making.
The techniques will include Named Entity Recognition, Sentiment Analysis and Text Categorization among others. Learners will also be introduced to various open source utilities for developing text analytics applications.

3. Predictive Analytics and Recommender Systems: The course covers various methods of Predictive Analytics and Recommender Systems drawn from Statistics, Data Mining, and Machine Learning. We will discuss popular algorithms in the domain and their use in various applications.
The course emphasizes hands-on approach for better understanding of the techniques used in the domain. During the course, mainly open-source tools will be used for illustrations and lab.
