  • Objectives

    This DESU responds to the challenges of decision statistics. Its objective is to give the trainee an operational mastery of machine learning techniques. The trainee will have to :

    • learn how to manipulate the computer tools used to collect and manage large volumes of data;
    • know the new concepts to support the company in the exploitation of data and decision making;
    • develop the theoretical and practical skills of professionals in machine learning.

    This diploma will allow the trainee to develop his field of knowledge in data science and to know the new concepts to accompany the company in the exploitation of data and the decision-makers in decision making.

    More specifically, the trainee will develop his knowledge on the following points:

    • the operation of a set of machine learning methods,
    • the different data management architectures,
    • the legal and ethical aspects inherent in the use of Big Data.

    At the end of the training, the trainee will be able to :

    • to use data storage, management and analysis software massively deployed on the market,
    • write computer programs to (i) load data, (ii) format them, (iii) analyse them in a more or less complex manner using the quantitative methods acquired during the theory sessions,
    • to apply machine learning algorithms to real data sets,
    • to test the validity of a machine learning model,
    • recover "raw" data via APIs, or via web scraping methods.
