Characteristics

    Despite the worldwide buzz and hype craving for big data and artificial intelligence, the Harvard Business Review hailed data scientists as "the sexiest profession of the 21st century."  Do you really want to equip yourself with the ability to analyze the big data?  Would you like to be able to correctly interpret the data analysis results?  Do you want to get a grasp on a variety of data types and be able to work comfortably with big data?  How do experts handle the rapidly increasing amount of data set (consists of billions to trillions of records of many things)?  How can decision makers predict the future using historical data?  Do you like to catch up with the up-to-date innovations in artificial intelligence? 

    We, the Institute of Data Science at National Cheng Kung University cordially invite you to join us!
