    The 5 Best Data Science Bootcamps to Accelerate Your Career in 2023

    Categories: Data Science

    A college degree is no longer the only way to build a successful career in Data Science. 

    Traditional university education models require both a significant time and financial investment, a combination that has led many adult learners to question if pursuing a traditional education is worth it.

    Here’s the truth: a degree is still a great way to establish the foundation of a career.

    But if a degree doesn’t fit into your lifestyle or budget (or you just don’t want to go to school for another four years), a bootcamp is a viable option.

    Finding the right Data Science bootcamp isn’t always easy, but it is relatively simple once you know the factors to consider and the bootcamp elements to look for.

    What are the best Data Science bootcamps?

    We recommend the Pace Data Science Bootcamp for remote students and the NYC Data Science Bootcamp and Codeup’s Data Science Bootcamp for learners who prefer in-person Data Science education.

    5 Must-Monitor Data Science Trends for 2023

    Categories: Data Science

    Data science is a field where data scientists, and other data professionals, analyze trends in data sets to give companies operations about their performance. The current demand for data transparency in the business world creates more opportunities than ever for data scientists to gather, analyze and process data in new ways.

    What data science trends will define 2023?

    Data science isn’t just for data scientists. 60% of the world’s companies currently use data and analytics to improve operations, a figure destined to grow in the next year. Trends in artificial intelligence, data democratization, data-as-a-service, data governance and augmented analytics could define the direction of the data science world in 2023.

    1. Artificial intelligence

    Artificial intelligence (AI) might conjure images of JARVIS from the Iron Man movies for some; others might picture a never-ending row of computers with complicated switches and flashing lights. In reality, AI uses an intelligent algorithm to process data automatically and utilize it for specific purposes, which means many data practices, like gathering, can be completed by computer.

    Here are some examples of the ways AI can help a business:

    • Optimize customer service — Many online businesses use chatbots to make customer communication more convenient, even when a live customer service agent is available to speak with a particular customer.
    • Elevate productivity — Not everyone has the luxury
