Our news and views relating to Data Analytics, Big Data, Machine Learning, and the world of Credit.
For the second roundup of our most popular 2018 blogs, we cover the Data Analytics topic. The blogs that our readers love are thought-provoking and aim to inspire and teach – and we hope these articles do just that!
It isn't always easy to keep up-to-date with the latest news in data science, machine learning or artificial intelligence. Twitter is a great source of information and helps you quickly scan through headlines to engage with content that interests you. This helps eliminate a lot of noise and helps you focus on what you want to read about, but you need to follow the right people for that content to appear in your feed.
Meetup (www.meetup.com) was founded in 2002 and is an online service used to organise groups that host in-person events for people with similar interests. A social networking tool, unlike any other, Meetup, has more than 35 million users in 180 countries. In South Africa, there are many meetups organised for various interests. Of course, our interests span data science, machine learning and AI, so we took the time to put together a (non-comprehensive) list of the groups who organise meetups that we (and hopefully you) find of interest. We hope you make it out to one of these groups meetups soon!
Our data scientists are keen readers and avid podcast listeners. In this blog, we list a few of the podcasts that cover topics such as data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and that we’d recommend if you’re looking to start exploring the world of podcasts.
In this blog, we’ve created a (non-exhaustive) list of courses you should consider if you want to learn essential data science skills in South Africa. These courses are mostly classroom training from South African institutions, but if you’re more interested in online learning, check out our blog Where To Learn Essential Data Science Skills Online.
