More to the cost point

The important part of the "COST" was how it is totally not accessible.  It is obvious that this is something we need.  Something that is emerging.  Something a large private school like USC can organize, but is not accessible to our model of HUD recipients.   

The BDPA group in LA should have a connector to show our small STEM labs in LA how this is deployed (knowledge) in our community.

This is why We Can Foundation in LA and aSteam Village in KC, EncounterLA @ LATTC are building this Network with HUD and are operating on a digital platform.

I am hoping the associations with NGA National Geospatial Administration and the quote from CIO becomes a perspective toward BIAS both in expectation and process.

This thinking regarding alignment of Tech Industry Silicon Valley, and reforming DOD was started with Secretary of Defense; under Obama; Ashton Carter  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ash_Carter

Technology was once driven by DARPA and DOD but it is now driven by commercial application.  This is part of Cyber Security conversation.

As Gen Bray says  Rebound like Russell and Shoot like Gretzky;  Respond by knowing where the future will be.

Hi all!

Inclusion for the underserved, which there is plenty of talent to participate is a hard stretch at $6,650.

I hope that we have a way to include, train and educate some of those who normally would not be at the table.

My Best,

Hi all,

$6,650 seems steep given all the current options (i.e Free/Fee MOOCs, EdX, Udacity, Coursera, DataCamp, DataQuest).  I also see that UCLA has a free curriculum. 

Other than the 10% discount.  What's unique about the USC program?

UCLA free curriculum for Big Data

Email below is kick off meet up for course on big data.  This is important part of our model.

A 16 week deep dive into Big Data.  Course Outline.  This should be a wakeup, this is data mining skills. $6650.00 out of bounds.

Tools and Processes explained.  Field titled Analytics.

Course taught by ALL USC FACULTY.

Subject: [meetup-group-mSTBIOKy] 16 weeks online Data Science Bootcamp starts from March 3rd

Hey fellow aspiring Data Scientist!

Thank you so much for supporting our meetup group! It's our pleasure to announce that we have a 16 week long online Data Science Bootcamp in association with IDEAS - Int'l Data Engineering and Science Association beginning on March 10!

What makes the bootcamp really great and unique, in contrast to other programs, is that it is heavily focused on techniques and their application. All of our instructors have extensive experience in industry and education, making this bootcamp ideal for kick-starting a successful career in data science! The first 6 weeks contain 6 mini projects to solve real world problems using data. These projects focus on Probability & Statistics in R, Machine Learning in Python, and Big Data with Hadoop Hive. Other topics discussed in this bootcamp are data visualization, A/B testing, deep learning, data virtualization, and data processing using SparkSQL and DataFrame. After all of the material is lectured, the last six weeks are utilized to complete two larger projects: FinTech and Recommendation system. These projects bring everything together from the course in order to develop and execute two full data science projects from start to finish. This is great for learning about what it takes to perform data analytics in industry. For more information on these projects, see the attached syllabus. Our instructors are Kyle Polich, Jason Geng, and Peter Fennell:

Kyle is currently the host and senior data scientist of the Data Skeptic Podcast. He also is a Mentor at Thinkful, an online school that utilizes face-to-face learning to teach programming and design courses. Additionally, Kyle has practiced data science at other companies like DataScience, Instantly, and Dex One.
Jason is a senior data scientist at Data Application Lab, as well as an adjunct professor at USC teaching data analytics courses. He specializes in big data projects and Hadoop Hive.
Peter is a postdoctoral researcher at USC in statistics and artificial intelligence. He has utilized his deep understanding of math and statistics to publish top-quartile journal articles and he has also assisted companies with forecasting and optimization.
We are offering a 10% off early bird discount if you sign up for the bootcamp before March 1st! For more information, please check https://www.dataapplab.com/datascience/. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@dataapplab.com!
