AlphaZetta Academy

AI and Data Science for Managers and Executives

This one-day workshop is aimed at current or aspiring leaders and managers of AI / machine learning teams and functions. The focus of the course is on the key concepts that are required to avoid the most common and far too frequent failures in AI projects and initiatives.
Topics covered include:
  • What is, and isn’t AI, machine learning and data science.
  • The KPI of data analytics: what it is, why it matters and how “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it” applies to AI. Plus you will gain basic, hands-on experience in working with this method.
  • The management of data science projects and functions, and how it differs from regular IT, BI and other projects.
  • Key differences in the activity, work style, personality and required management of developers/engineers and data scientists.
  • The role of the sponsor, manager, team leader in AI and data science functions.
The seminar includes basic hands-on exercises, as well as interactive, facilitated discussion, and an opportunity to spend time with Eugene, who has two decades of practical, commercial experience in the field.

Testimonials

Eugene’s courses are not your standard technical courses where you learn how to put data into a model and get a result. The real life experiences – warts and all – he brings to the instruction mean that attendees walk away with a better understanding of the real life challenges of analytics as well as the technical know-how. We routinely send our team members on these courses to help them get the capabilities that really help our clients get better insights from their data.

James provided a testimonial on Eugene Dubossarsky's courses.James Beresford, Director, Agile BI

Eugene’s introductory course to data science was outstanding.

I found the subject matter and delivery fascinating, accessible and informative. I found Eugene approachable, interesting to listen to and excellent at simplifying complex concepts. I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to know what data science—and all the buzz surrounding it!—are all about.
