New Trainings at Data Science Dojo | IoT

Last July, Data Science Dojo (DSD) announced a new data science certificate program with University of New Mexico Continuing Education (UNMCE). Continuing with this partnership, DSD has announced two new trainings to be held at UNMCE; A Hands-on Introduction to Data Science and A Hands-on Introduction to Internet of Things (IoT).

A Hands-on Introduction to Data Science

Taking place March 11-13, 2020, at UNMCE, this new training will only be three days instead of five, and the days are a little shorter (days start at 9 am rather than 8 am). The course is made to give a strict fundamental knowledge of data science, taking away some of the stress of coupling a data science training with data engineering.

The training is taught in a series of live, in-person, instructor-led tutorials to equip you with data science fundamentals, R programming, and Azure machine learning tools for data science. Anyone is welcome to attend, especially those who would like to add data science as a skill or who want to learn more about the field.

Below is a list of some of the topics that will be covered during the course. To see the full list, please view the full curriculum.

  • Introduction to Big Data, Data Science and Predictive Analytics
  • Data Exploration, Visualization, and Feature Engineering
  • Introduction to Predictive Modeling, Classification and Decision Trees
  • Evaluation of Classification Models
  • Deploying a model in Azure machine learning
  • Participation in a Kaggle competition

A Hands-on Introduction to Internet of Things

Scheduled for April 20-21, 2020, also at UNM, this introduction to IoT is 2 days of real-time analytics. The course is designed to give a gente introduction to IoT. At the end of the second day, attendees will understand the architecture of an IoT application and build a working prototype of an IoT project.

The IoT prototype comes in 4 different tracks, meant to simulate some of the industries where the internet of things is most popular:

  • Agriculture - Real-time monitoring of humidity, temperature, and light from soil
  • Transportation - Real-time tracking of an automobile location
  • Industrial Automation - Real-time monitoring of machine health
  • Surveillance - Real-time activity monitoring

The bootcamp also includes lessons on social media (Twitter) sentiment analysis, simulated credit card data steam, and motion sensing data emitted by a smart phone. To get the full idea of what you'll learn, take a look at the curriculum Data Science Dojo has put together.

Schedule a call with one of Data Science Dojo's course advisors to learn more about the 2-day IoT program. This course is eligible for UNM tuition remission.
