Intro To Data Science

  • York Butter Factory Co-Working Space 62-66 King St Melbourne (map)



Do you spend your workdays sitting in front of Excel? Do you want to move up the value chain? Do you want to be a data scientist?

In this one-hour session, we will show you how to solve two very common business problems with ease, using cutting-edge tools from the world of data science. We'll also give you a road-map of what data science skills are most desirable, and how to go about gaining them. To illustrate, we'll use examples using a dataset of real Australian tax returns, mobile phone payments data from East Africa, and the investment returns of hundreds of Australian superannuation funds.


  • This 1-hour workshop, we will take a tour on why learning data science will improve participants' lives.

  • How we get things done before and after learning the right tools.

  • You will gain access to our member-only discussion forums where you can share learnings, challenges and thought leadership with other innovation enthusiasts

  • You will gain access to exclusive Collective Campus alumni events, including opportunities to connect with both established and emerging startups

  • You will become a part of the exclusive Collective Campus community

  • You will receive ongoing thought leadership and case studies as they happen to keep abreast of the latest happenings relating to enterprise innovation
