Credo di avere individuato un qualcosa che può portare ad avvicinarci all'agoritmo definitivo se non all'agoritmo stesso. Il problema è avere un contatto con qualcuno. Ideale sarebbe Pedro Domingos, sono disposto ad affrontare il viaggio ovunque si trovi in questo momento, Se qualcuno mi può aiutare, gradire parlarne. Attendo 29 novembre 20018.

Well, I think he is talking in a very general way. They pretty much the same, but when we talk about Bid data I think we definitely we go for a data scientist.

I am not convinced by his answer. Doing Data science is part/phase/component of business analytics process. It plays a role in proving some actionable insights leading to "Business Analytics".

Hi, Raj!
We're happy to assist you. To clarify, are you looking to train specifically in SAS? If so, do you have SAS experience already or would you be starting from the beginning?

We're happy to help! To ensure we send the most appropriate resources, what country are you in?

l garciadiego (1 year ago)

I think he's describing more like Data Engineering roles. From my knowledge, the main difference are the skills that you must have not only with programming (everyone can program) but must importantly with maths and statistics.

Sandy Sandeep (2 years ago)

What exact topics I need to learn to become a Data Analyst?
Python - Pandas, Matplotlib, Numpy.
Statistics
SQL
Then? What other things I should learn?

playingfool (1 year ago)

you need to have mathematical knowledge...like geometry...graph theory..matrix..number theory,sets,probability and others....also learn data structures ...sql is just not enough...tree,graphs and others..you gonna also need algorithm skill too...that would be pretty tough and time consuming. all the best for future.

Nawal (1 year ago)
