EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST ARE OPEN

The WA Data Science Innovation Hub (WADSIH), in conjunction with Halliburton and supported by NERA and METS Ignited, is pleased to offer a FREE interactive and hands on data science bootcamp for 10 industry professionals working in a Western Australian SME or startup.

As organisations begin to collect more and more data, it is imperative that they have the skills to know how to generate insights and business value from this data. Participants will be chosen based on their responses to our online expression of interest form – we are seeking engaged and determined professionals who can take full advantage of this course to drive business outcomes in their organisations.

The bootcamp will be facilitated and led by Dr. Satyam Priyadarshy, Technology Fellow and Chief Data Scientist, Halliburton and Adjunct Professor, Oklahoma State University. His team of data scientists will also cover some of the topics during the course of the bootcamp. Facilitators will work closely with this small group of participants to upskill them in the key areas of data science relevant to the participants’ organisations.

Bootcamp Description

We live in Industry 4.0 era, which relies on big data analytics. For meaningful big data analytics, we need experienced and knowledgeable Data Scientists, however, there is lack of talent globally. Despite this, there are very experienced domain experts already within organisations. We have the opportunity to transform that talent to think, work, and create value like a Data Scientist and improve their data science skillset through a proven SMART approach to talent transformation. In the last two years, Halliburton have graduated 300+ professionals globally through a series of bootcamps on Big Data and Data Science, empowering them to leverage data science skills in their jobs.

Bootcamp Schedule

The workshop will consist of 3 x one hour sessions per day, Monday through to Friday (15 hours total). A number of interactive quizzes will be implemented throughout the workshop. Data for various exercises will be provided, except for the project execution, whereby attendees will be encouraged to provide their own data. During the sessions we will leverage tools such as R, Python, PowerBI, and Opensource Visualizations (D3.js or similar).
