Abhishek’s Answer

Data science is a broad field and data scientists usually come from various backgrounds such as business, physics, math, computer science etc. Make sure you learn basic and advanced statistics coupled with programming languages such as Python and R. This should give you a solid foundation in Data science.


- Gain experience in the field you intend to work in (ex: healthcare, physics, business)

- Learn basic and advanced statistics coupled with programming languages such as Python and R

- Kaggle is a great way to gain hands-on experience

Aiswarya’s Answer

Listing down the starter kit for Data Science :
Maths — 3Blue1Brown (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYO_jab_esuFRV4b17AJtAw)
Machine Learning — Andrew Ng, Coursera (https://www.coursera.org/learn/machine-learning)
Programming — Python for Data Science and Machine Learning (https://www.udemy.com/course/python-for-data-science-and-machine-learning-bootcamp/)
Statistics — Elements of Statistical Learning (https://web.stanford.edu/~hastie/Papers/ESLII.pdf)

A strong grasp of these techniques and practice (a lot of practice), will help you kick-start your career in data science.

Michele’s Answer

I would do some research. Here in the US, Data Science is a rather saturated market right now with many people graduating and competing on this area so companies are specific about what they are looking for. You might look broader at Analytics types of roles where you can use your education background which might be a bit easier initially.

Sean’s Answer

Data Science is a very broad field and may cover difference techniques in difference companies/circumstances. From your hashtags I am assuming you wanted to learning Machine Learning.

Nowadays there are many useful beginner ML classes online you can find. The most famous one is the one from Andrew Ng on Coursera https://www.coursera.org/learn/machine-learning. It covers the basic of ML.

After getting basic ideas, you can start playing with different Python package on public datasets. You can check out Kaggle competitions, find simple problems to solve, and see how other people solve it in the Kaggle forum. Learning by doing is the way I found most effective. :)

Some notion in mathematics, statistics, probability wil help you in the transition.

Let me know if you want yo go further in data science and will recommend some more advaced courses
