“The partnership with Dataiku is very exciting to us,” says Vivian Zhang (founder of NYC Data Science Academy). “We have always focused on our students developing strong technical skills. The trend though is for data scientists to also be skilled in the impactul interpretation of findings using automated data analytics and machine learning toolkits. We are excited to be leaders in this aspect of the data scientist’s education.”

During our 12-week full-time Data Science Bootcamp, students analyze an immense amount of data. Dataiku’s software, DSS, will now be used to enhance the students' experience. Their expert data scientists will also be on hand to guest lecture courses and help guide projects for students.

This initiative complements Dataiku’s vision of a world where all businesses, whatever industry or size, can produce their own data-driven strategies by converting raw data into business impacting forecasts. And supports our goal to deliver the most relevant and highest quality content to our students.

We're very excited about the partnership between NYC Data Science Academy and Dataiku. It's another great step towards bringing the efficient practice of advanced analytics techniques to aspiring data scientists. We expect that their feedback will be invaluable as we continue to develop the best possible platform for collaborative data science.

If you're a prospective data scientist looking to enhance your quantitative and coding skills and you're an independent, self-directed data geek then apply now to the NYC Data Science Academy bootcamp and Download Dataiku’s Data Science Studio Community Edition to get started immediately.
