o Check the adequacy and fitness of data involved
o Interpret the results of an analysis and extract insights
o Make decisions based on the insights

You will acquire all these skills by taking this course. Together, we will expand your quantitative skills and will ensure you have a solid preparation.
The course is organized into four main chapters. First, you will start with understanding data terminology – we will discuss the different types of data, data storage systems, and the technical tools needed to analyze data.
Then, we will proceed with showing you how to use data. We’ll talk about Business Intelligence (BI), Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as various machine and deep learning techniques.
In the third chapter of the course, you will learn how to comprehend data, perform data quality assessments, and read major statistics (measures of central tendency and measures of spread).
We conclude this course with an extensive section dedicated to interpreting data. You will become familiar with fundamental analysis techniques such as correlation, simple linear regression (what r-squared and p-values indicate), forecasting, statistical tests, and many more.
By the end of the course, you will learn how to understand and use the language of data.
Your instructor for this class will be Olivier Maugain. Very few online courses are taught by people with his professional track record.
