Data Science Roadmap - Future Extensions A roadmap for Data Scientist Enablement program.

Goal
Prepare the learners to have set of T-shaped practical-skills emphasizing depth and breadth of a range of relevant disciplines and capabilities in Data Science. Our Philosophy is to employ open information, Open Courseware, Open Source Frameworks, tools and platforms, publications etc. rather than protected intellectual property. We balance this with the need of aspiring Data Scientists and Big Data Engineers to learn/master commercial platforms and tools.

Audience
As an introductory course for anyone (students,and practicing professionals, engineers as well as technical leaders), this will provide solid foundation in the context of data science.
