What is Data Science?
The exponential increase in computing power through the latter half of the 20th century, combined with the accumulation of recorded data at the dawn of the 21st, has given birth to the new field of data
science. The growth of diverse, cross-disciplinary field of has brought about new ways of studying the world, giving us new tools and methods to examine questions that until recently were not quantifiable. Data science offers the opportunity for those who are considering leaving academia, but who want to continue in a research capacity, to utilise their expertise and knowledge in solving interesting problems with real-world applications.
At Pivigo, we support academics in this transition to industry through our S2DS, the largest data science boot-camp in Europe. S2DS is a 5-week programme, hosted in London, during which the participants gain practical data science experience through working on industry projects with our partner companies. Working with these companies – including large businesses like British Gas, Royal Mail, and KPMG; charitable organizations like Just Giving and the NCVO; and exciting start-ups like Growth Intelligence and HAL24K – provides you with real world data science experience that will help accelerate your career transition.”
