Looking for a light 2 unit class that introduces you to the world of data science? Look no further! Data Science Society at Berkeley’s DeCal: Essential Tools for Data Science is currently looking for students!
Everywhere you look, data is being collected and used to make decisions about your day, starting from your news feed in the morning, to the Instagram stories you binge during lunch, to the coffee shops you go to, and the best transit routes back home.
That’s why we created this DeCal to introduce EVERYONE to the fascinating world of data analytics and insight and how it’s transforming our lives one data point at a time. Whether you’re an experienced coder looking to grow your domain expertise or a complete novice technologist trying to learn the ropes, come along with us on this journey - we won’t disappoint.
We aim to expose you to essential data science concepts, many not covered as much in Berkeley coursework, that will not only make you more employable but will also be very relevant to your field-irrespective of what you end up choosing in this data-rich age. There will be a strong focus on building a statistical intuition without delving into the arcane details of the machine learning models themselves in a way actively geared towards people of ALL backgrounds.
There are absolutely NO prerequisites, and people of ALL majors, backgrounds, and interests are actively encouraged to apply!
Student Interest form deadline: Sept 9th, 11:59 pm
