Hi Everyone,

 

My name is Warren. I’m from Zimbabwe and currently live in South Africa. I’m a freelance consultant and I’m interested in data science because of the confidence it gives to decision-making. It also allows us to gain insights that we may not have otherwise been aware of. I think data science makes businesses more efficient and effective.

 

I’m especially interested in using data science to improve global sustainability. I believe data science can offer creative solutions to the world’s sustainability woes. 

 

I would love to learn more about machine learning AI with a focus on computer vision.

Hi!, i am fadhlan and im taking Applied Data Science by Joseph Santarcangelo and Alex Aklson

Hi!, i have been fascinated with Data Science and ML since couple years ago but only started learning / teaching myself earlier this year (the pandemy really boost my learning interest).

i have no academy background in Computer Science (i am a Mechanical Eng. Undergrad), no working experience in this field (i worked in construction and financial service).

so my question is :
1. for someone who has no background or experience in this field (other than self teaching), how hard is it to start a career in Data Science / ML field? and what do you need to have a chance or increase your chance at making a start in this field?
2. how prominent / popular is ‘R’ Language in the industry? because almost every job qualification i saw are requiring you to know R, but all courses and tutorials i have followed only used python, maybe i havent look hard enough.
3. how different is python and R? Is it easy to learn R if you already know Python?

Hello my name is Emmanuel, I'm learning about data science. I'm from Brazil, I live in Curitiba.

I will share with you a little bit of my choice in learning about data science. I am a person who really likes to study, I was an undergraduate student in physics. And I have always looked at possible solutions to various problems that exist in various areas. At a certain time in 2017, I decided to resume my studies and change course, I decided to do administration, and there I came across business intelligence.

I always wanted to learn about a programming language, and to solve problems with it. That was when I had the opportunity now this year 2020, to participate in a group of economic monitoring studies. And I was able to compose the data science group. So I need to learn to apply, and I loved the area. Because in addition to solving problems, you must always study and review what you already know. This describes me a lot, I love to study and learn more.

I know little about it, but every day I try to read more, listen more and learn more. I am really interested in having this new area as my profession, and being part of a team where I can use my intellectual abilities to solve problems, and together with the new skills I want to learn, to be a great data scientist.
