Persontyle launches “The School of Data Science”, offering Data Science and Big Data education for professionals to help address the looming Data Science skills gap. 

London, United Kingdom, 25 April 2014  — Persontyle, the provider of Data Science education and services are proud to announce the launch of “The School of Data Science”, offering the most comprehensive portfolio of Data Science and Machine Learning courses for professionals.

Declared by Harvard Business Review as the ‘sexiest job of the 21st century’, Data Science skills are becoming a key asset in any organization confronted with the daunting challenge of making sense of data that comes in varieties and volumes never encountered before. The rapid growth of data has been such that few sectors can ignore it. The problem for many organizations is finding the Data Science expertise to understand what this data means as the demand for data scientists outstrips supply.

The most commonly cited barrier to Data Science adoption is a lack of professionals with the right skills or training and there are many research and surveys confirming that in the future, demand for data scientists will outpace the supply of talent. To address this, Persontyle is announcing the most comprehensive portfolio of Data Science and Machine Learning courses covering key subject areas, methods and technologies to help cultivate professionals who can extract value, insights and predictions from data.

“The School of Data Science aims to bring accessible, affordable, engaging, and highly interactive Data Science and Machine Learning education to the world”, says Ali Syed, founder and CEO of Persontyle. “Our training programs and courses are carefully tailored to meet the needs of both established industry professionals and those that are new to the field of Data Science. We are providing great opportunity for all business and technology professionals to develop the skills required to think and work like data scientists.”

The School of Data Science training programs are designed by the renowned academics, authors and professionals in the field of Data Science, Machine Learning, big data, applied statistics and industry domains and will be offered in the format of instructor-led short courses and bootcamps. Learning experiences are designed to cover the theory, tools and applied practices required throughout the entire Data Science lifecycle, from asking the relevant questions to making predictions and visualizing results.

Brief overview of the School of Data Science education offerings are provided below.

Data Science and Machine Learning Courses

Full range of short courses are available to help industry professionals to learn the skills they need to become a practicing data scientist. To make learning experience easier, the courses are curated in a sequential order for Beginner level, Foundation level and Advanced level audience. Please visit the Courses page to learn more about the courses available for open enrolment. Spaces are limited. We encourage you to register as soon as you can. http://www.persontyle.com/courses/

Big Data Academy

With Big Data becoming ever so relevant, The School of Data Science is offering Hadoop based training courses with the focus on how organizations can take advantage of Hadoop as an enterprise data management platform to deliver value and profitability by analyzing massive scale data sets. Courses are designed for professionals, technologists and data scientists to learn how to store, process, and analyze growing and evolving datasets.

Corporate Data Science Training Solutions

Data Science has become an increasingly important aspect in corporate functionality, and for organizations to ensure that data creates value calls for a reskilling effort. Corporate Data Science training is for organizations to offer their workforce the opportunity to develop skills and expertise in statistics, model development, data science lifecycle, Machine Learning, data engineering, data visualization and other decision making skills and concepts. Organizations can engage the Persontyle team of data scientists to conduct a free half day workshop to develop a tailored training solution focused on their requirements, challenges and opportunities.

The Data Science Incubator (PhD to Data Scientist)

A 6 week bootcamp fellowship in London that prepares the talented STEM PhDs to work as data scientists. Program is for quantitative oriented research professionals (PhD and postdoc students) who have a strong desire to round off their Data Science skills, in preparation for assuming senior data scientist roles in an industry setting.

Open Data Science Fellows Program (ODSFP)

ODSFP is a collaborative platform for Data Science enthusiasts to get together to learn Data Science, to solve meaningful data problems, ask questions, share ideas in a social setting. ODSFP is a not-for-profit program dedicated to the dissemination of Data Science and applying it on Open Data for social good.

The connected world is a world of data. All actions, interactions and behaviours both of humans and machines are stored and transmitted across networks to keep the engines of the digital age running. We now live in an increasingly data driven world, but it is harder than ever to detect the meaningful signals amid the noise of data. Learning Data Science concepts and practices empowers us to deal with this data, equips us with the understanding to ignore noise to heed signals and most importantly helps us to focus on delivering meaningful value.

The School of Data Science presents unprecedented opportunities to develop the necessary skills and the expertise required to use data to unveil patterns, insights and predictions
