For every program we launch, we aim to gather a teaching crew of the best subject matter experts in research, freelancing, corporate and education. We are grateful and excited to have a many Data professionals with different backgrounds joining us for the launch of our first Data Science Bootcamp in China. Meet some of the heroes you will see in the program!
We are in an era of data-driven-everything. Commercial teams rely on data to make business decisions, doctors rely on data to recommend treatment and we rely on data to tell us if we are walking and sleeping a healthy amount.
This ubiquity of data in our lives is even more pronounced in China - the country where 1.1 billion people handle their personal, professional and social life with their smartphone. Beyond the oceans of data generated every minute, China put AI and Big Data high on their agenda - China wants to be the leader in AI by 2030. An ambitious goal, which will drive the demand for Data experts on all fronts. And that is why we are launching the Data Science Bootcamp in Shanghai this April! 🚀
Today we are excited to introduce some of the teachers joining us on the mission to help individuals transition to a career in data:
