  • By learning, we can add new knowledge, experiences and insights that we have never found before.
    This course gives the brief knowledge about what is Data and its related information.
    It's very helping to Database in Banking.

    This is not "free" as they claim... Labs have a cost in credits. And somehow they made it excruciatingly painful to bypass the payment using the course's own resources. I got tired of looking around of where I was supposed to find the so called "Lab Token". I couldn't make it to 1st lab. Why doest it have to be so complicated? How do you expect people to sell your product? Becuase that is what you are brewing here: salesforce.

    This course gives the brief knowledge about what is Data and its related information.
    With the advent of new methods usually identified under the banners of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), statistical analysis methods of complex and uncertain manufacturing systems have been undergoing significant changes. Therefore, various definitions of AI, a brief history, and its differences with traditional statistics are presented.
