Integrated Program in Data Science and Machine Learning by University of Chicago and Jigsaw Academy
Jigsaw Academy takes great pride in announcing the launch of the Integrated Program in Data Science and Machine Learning (IDM) in collaboration with one of the most highly acclaimed Universities in the World, the University of Chicago Graham School.
The course is mainly designed for aspirants who want to build a career in Data Science, Machine Learning and work with renowned organizations across the globe that derives business solutions through analytics. The course allows students to learn to process, visualize data and solve real-life problems through data analysis. International lecturers and industry experts from the University of Chicago and Jigsaw Academy together aid participants in reaching those goals.
Gaurav Vohra, Our CEO’s says that “The IT services market has become saturated. Globally, there are no large untapped markets left. The pie is not growing and so everyone is fighting for the same pieces. Companies need to differentiate themselves to grow. Skills like QA and testing that Indians once excelled at, are no longer “in-demand” skills. Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Big Data and Machine Learning – these are the skills of the future, the skills that emerging data scientists need to be picking up.”
New age companies like Uber, Airbnb, Netflix and Facebook rely heavily on big data and machine learning for everything. However, with the upskilling of data science, big data and machine learning, India can become a world leader.
On the brighter side, this is University of Chicago’s first and exclusive collaboration with an Indian start-up in the education sector. This collaboration caters to a significant population of learners by upskilling the technology-driven workforce in India. “The comprehensive course will help an aspirant acquire the skills necessary to remain competitive and relevant in a dynamic industry,” added Rob Schnieders, Senior Associate Dean, University of Chicago in a recently held press conference.
The first is, of course, the need for professionals with skills to mine information and insights from increasingly vast and complex data that is being generated at a phenomenal pace. These are highly valued and highly technical skills, spanning multiple disciplines including statistics, business knowledge, programming, and data management and processing.
The second aspect is around the softer but equally important skills that are needed in performing data science jobs well – project management, client management, communicating results, the ability to tell interesting stories with data to non-technical business audiences.
“Based on our experience with training across multiple companies and students, we realized that this is an aspect that is often overlooked in programs that focus on technical skills. In this program, we are placing a lot of emphasis on these aspects as well to improve the ability of students to excel in the analytics and data science roles that they are aiming for, and in helping companies hire people that are completely prepared in handling these roles,” says Sarita Digumarti, COO of Jigsaw Academy.
Let’s have a look at the takeaways of the program, which can help you if you would like to enroll in it:
