About the Course
Watch Prof. Younge give an overview to a Swiss audience about the Data Science course now offered in the Seattle area by GIX.
Executives will quickly gain a high-level understanding of an otherwise deeply technical field, and the course will help you to separate AI-reality from AI-hype. Above all, the course will help you identify opportunities that can make a real difference to your bottom line.
The course is limited to 10 participants to foster discussion within the group.
