New tools and packages are rapidly democratizing the field of data science, giving rise to the role of “citizen data scientists”—professionals who may not have deep programming skills but, with the right tools, are capable of leveraging advanced technologies as well as working with and leading teams of data scientists to create value and realize the potential of artificial intelligence. A recent Gartner study projects the number of citizen data scientists will grow five times faster than the number of expert data scientists in the next few years.
The Artificial Intelligence Innovation Certificate program is designed with the citizen data scientist in mind. You will examine AI-related concepts that lead to discovery of innovative solutions to business challenges. Key topics include data programming, machine learning and predictive analytics.
Leverage the Known and Unknown in Our Innovation Studio
What truly sets the certificate apart is our Innovation Studio, which provides an experiential environment for networking and collaboration. As part of an interdisciplinary team, you will test prototypes, design compelling and competitive value propositions and pitch to prospective customers and investors. You also will develop critical soft skills like emotional intelligence, communication and social influence/trust. Via a collision of perspectives and concepts, you will become comfortable with ambiguity and experimentation and build the courage to explore and leverage the known—and unknown—technologies that are profoundly impacting our world.
