Data Literacy for Business

Don't let your organization get stuck in the past, learn how data literacy can accelerate your business!

What is Data Literacy?

Data literacy is the ability to read, understand, create, and communicate data as information. Much like literacy as a general concept, data literacy focuses on the competencies involved in working with data. At Pierian Training, we are the professional training partners of choice if your goal is to empower your employees with the latest technology skills. We believe technology is a powerful tool that your workforce can leverage to become more productive and achieve results in the face of modern challenges. This Data Literacy training is designed to give you a high level overview of the key topics in Data Science and Machine Learning. Designed exclusively for students who want to learn about the basics of data science and machine learning at a high level, without needing to learn how to code or cover complex mathematics. 

What is covered in this training course?

In this course you’ll learn the fundamental concepts relating to data, allowing you to understand what makes data suitable for data analysis, visualization and machine learning. Then we’ll give you a quick overview of important statistical topics, such as mean, standard deviation, and the normal distribution. Afterwards you will learn the different ways data scientists are able to visualize data to convey their ideas in a clear manner. We’ll also teach you about the machine learning process, acquiring data, cleaning data, and an overview of the train/test split philosophy that supervised learning adheres to. Then we’ll show you some examples of regression and classification algorithms, as well as how to evaluate their results. We’ll also explore what the future holds by taking a peek at the bleeding edge of AI and ML, including DALLE-2 and GPT-3!
