Coursera and MathWorks Announce New Data Science Course

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 4 novembre 2019

MathWorks and Coursera, the world’s leading online learning platform, today announced a joint effort to address the data science skills gap. MathWorks is developing a series of courses entitled “Practical Data Science with MATLAB,” with the first course, “Exploratory Data Analysis with MATLAB,” now available on Coursera. Registration for the four-course Specialization, which helps learners solve domain-specific data problems using MATLAB, is now open at: coursera.org/specializations/practical-data-science-matlab.According to a March 2019 Coursera Global Skills Index (GSI) report, the demand for data science skills is increasing by both individuals and companies alike. Looking at year-over-year learner enrollment numbers within the domain of data science, there was a notable increase in demand for the competencies of machine learning (+14%) and statistical programming (+9%). The increasing amount of data being collected across industries has fueled demand for greater personalization in products and services, influencing the popularity of these skills.The “Practical Data Science with MATLAB” Specialization helps address this demand as it is aimed at engineers, scientists, and researchers who need to learn data science either as part of their job or to branch into new career opportunities. The series enables these domain experts to learn and apply data science without spending time building or honing software development skills. Each course takes approximately five weeks, and, upon completion of the four-course Specialization, students will be ready to start applying MATLAB to common analysis tasks found in applications such as autonomous systems, voice recognition, predictive maintenance, and medical imaging.

Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2019

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 12 ottobre 2019

Human Data Science. E’ questo il tema scelto per la sesta edizione di Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2019, il contest internazionale promosso da BNP Paribas Cardif, tra le prime dieci compagnie assicurative in Italia, che fino al 28 ottobre dà la possibilità a chiunque abbia un’idea innovativa di presentare il proprio progetto (www.insuranceup.it/it/call4ideas). I tre vincitori, che saranno selezionati da un Comitato di valutazione e premiati durante l’evento finale che si terrà a Milano a fine novembre, verranno affiancati dal team R&D di BNP Paribas Cardif nello sviluppo e nella concretizzazione dell’idea, tenendo in considerazione le esigenze del mercato e della Compagnia.
Negli ultimi anni l’analisi dei big data e l’AI hanno dato una forte spinta alla competitività delle imprese, aprendo nuove opportunità fino a poco tempo fa impensabili. Le aziende hanno iniziato a capire le potenzialità dei Big Data Analytics, settore che nel 2018 ha raggiunto un valore complessivo di quasi 1,4 mld di euro (+26% rispetto al 2017)[2], ma bisogna andare oltre. Per valorizzare e interpretare correttamente la mole di informazioni che ogni giorno vengono prodotte in Italia e nel mondo, è necessario creare nuovi modelli che combinino all’analisi dei dati anche il fattore umano puntando al benessere non solo come assenza di malattie ma in termini più ampi di vivere bene. Ed è proprio dall’unione di questi due elementi che nasce l’Human Data Science, un modello multidisciplinare che mantiene le persone al centro, comprendendo ciò che conta davvero per loro, e puntando ad un approccio olistico di medicina, wellness, alimentazione, lifestyle.
A Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2019, start-up, scale-up, imprese innovative e giovani studenti possono così proporre idee per, alternativamente e sempre nel rispetto della confidenzialità, arricchire la catena del valore dei dati tramite il Data Enrichment, comprendere i bisogni delle persone tramite la modellazione dei dati oppure migliorare la Customer Experience dei clienti utilizzando un approccio Human Centric guidato dall’analisi dei dati.Le proposte di partecipazione dovranno essere inviate entro il 28 ottobre 2019 tramite il form di registrazione al link: http://www.insuranceup.it/it/call4ideas.
Rivolta a chiunque abbia un’idea innovativa (start-up, scale-up e imprese innovative, imprenditori, giovani studenti, ecc.), Open-F@b Call4Ideas è un progetto di Open Innovation, lanciato per la prima volta nel 2014 da BNP Paribas Cardif in collaborazione con InsuranceUp.it. Dopo aver trattato nelle scorse edizioni la Customer Acquisition, l’Internet of Things e i Big Data, la Customer Experience e la Preventive Insurance e raccolto nel 2018 le migliori soluzioni tecnologiche che hanno un impatto sociale positivo sulle persone e sulla società, l’edizione 2019 premierà le tre idee più innovative sul tema dell’Human Data Science.Un Comitato costituito da executive del Gruppo BNP Paribas e di BNP Paribas Cardif, da professionisti universitari nell’ambito delle tecnologie digitali e da esperti, selezionerà i finalisti, che presenteranno dal vivo i propri progetti all’evento finale atteso a Milano nel mese di novembre. I tre vincitori verranno affiancati dal team R&D di BNP Paribas Cardif nello sviluppo e nella concretizzazione del loro progetto, tenendo in considerazione le esigenze del mercato e della Compagnia.Anche per il 2019, il contest vedrà la collaborazione di Medici powered by Let’s Talk Payments LCC, società di advisory e scouting di startup insurtech e fintech a livello globale. Tutti i finalisti potranno, inoltre, essere inseriti nel database di MEDICI, e ricevere un pacchetto di servizi di marketing a loro dedicati, essere presentati a C Entrepreneurs Fund, il fondo venture capital di BNP Paribas Cardif ed essere inseriti nella piattaforma di Open Innovation Scoop del polo International Financial Services del Gruppo BNP Paribas.Quali sono i risultati di Open-F@b Call4Ideas? Nelle ultime cinque edizioni sono state proposte oltre 300 candidature – la metà provenienti dall’estero -, selezionate più di 60 idee innovative, che hanno portato a diverse collaborazioni e alla realizzazione di almeno un progetto l’anno, e investiti circa 800mila euro totali.
