Oxford University to teach Data Science for IoT

November 24, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Responding to the global talent drought of data scientists, Oxford University’s CPD Centre will be launching a new course, Data Science for the Internet of Things IoT in January next year.

“Connected devices (IoT) generate more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data daily. All this data will significantly impact business processes and the Data Science for IoT will take an increasingly central role”, explains Ajit Jaokar , Lead Tutor and Course Director.

The creative use of this data is allowing companies of all types optimize many different aspects of their operations, creating a surge of new ideas in an increasingly wide range of sectors. It has the potential to create new branches of knowledge which will have a profound impact on humanity.

This four-month, part-time course is an exploration into the unique challenges of the internet of things, providing IoT analytics, techniques and solutions for aspiring data scientists. The practical approach applies toolkits and templates to relevant industry case studies.

The Data Science for the Internet of Things (IoT) course will be held at the Department of Continuing Education, University of Oxford from 21 January to 11 April 2017.
