We are joining hands to provide candidates of our PG Diploma in Data Analytics, an added exposure to UpGrad Industry Projects. While the program already covers multiple case studies and projects in the core curriculum, these projects with Analytics Vidhya will be optional for students to help them further hone their skills on data-driven problem-solving techniques. To further facilitate the learning, Analytics Vidhya will also be providing mentoring sessions to help our students with the approach to these projects.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1What are some of the tips for being ready for the data science hackathon?

If you're already familiar with one of the coding languages, go ahead and utilize it. Instead of learning a new tool, concentrate on solving problems. Most of your labor will be futile if you don't grasp the issue statement, the data, and the assessment metric. Reread all of the material accessible to you. It will assist you in determining a strategy/direction before creating a single line of code. Only once you have a firm grasp of the goal can you go on to the data exploration step.

Ensemble modelling is a great tool for improving your model's performance. It is the skill of integrating different findings from several models to improve the model's stability and predictive capability. In your team, try to locate someone with complementary talents.

2What are the AV points in Analytics Vidhya?

The world's leading data science community and knowledge portal is Analytics Vidhya. Datahack contest scores and user rankings might help you figure out where you are as a data scientist and evaluate your progress. Points are not awarded to anonymous users since this may reveal the participant's identity. You can't opt to be anonymous during a hackathon if you want to get points. The awards specify the maximum points for a hackathon. If you participate in more than one hackathon, the points from each one are simply put together. The users' overall ranking is determined by their total points earned throughout all hackathons.

3What is the PG certification in data science?

The PG Certification in Data Science is a 12-month online program designed for working people who want to improve their practical knowledge and abilities, build a professional network, and jumpstart their careers in data science. Graduates with a minimum of 50% in mathematics, statistics, or programming as a topic in a qualifying degree are eligible to apply.
