Welcome back to this introductory course on
data for data science.
I’m Matthew Renze, data science consultant,
author, and public speaker.
In this module, we’ll learn about the life
cycle of data the journey of data as we move
from data collection to action.
How do we get from data collection to action
in data science?
What does the journey of data look like through
these various stages?
And what are the tools and methods involved
in this process?
To answer these questions, we’re going to
follow the journey of data from data collection
First, we’ll learn about data collection and
how we record observations of our world.
Next, we’ll learn about data storage, and
the various types of data repositories we encounter.
Then, we’ll learn about data processing, and
steps we perform to prepare our data for analysis.
Next, we’ll learn about data analysis, and
the many tools we can use to analyze data.
Then, we’ll learn about taking action based
on the results of our analysis.
Finally, we’ll learn about how we repeat this
process, using feedback as our guide, to optimize
