Project 1: Products rating prediction for Amazon

Domain: E-commerce

Amazon, one of the leading US-based e-commerce companies, recommends products within the same category to customers based on their activity and reviews on other similar products. Amazon would like to improve this recommendation engine by predicting ratings for the non-rated products and add them to recommendations accordingly.

Project 2: Improving customer experience for Comcast

Domain: Telecom

Description: Comcast, one of the leading US-based global telecommunication companies wants to improve customer experience by identifying and acting on problem areas that lower customer satisfaction if any. The company is also looking for key recommendations that can be implemented to deliver the best customer experience.

Project 3: Attrition Analysis for IBM

Domain: Workforce Analytics

Description: IBM, one of the leading US-based IT companies, would like to identify the factors that influence the attrition of employees. Based on the parameters identified, the company would also like to build a logistics regression model that can help predict if an employee will churn or not.

Project 4: Predict accurate sales for 45 stores of Walmart, one of the leading US-based leading retail stores, considering the impact of promotional markdown events. Check if macroeconomic factors like CPI, unemployment rate, etc. have an impact on sales.

Domain: Retail

Description: Walmart runs several promotional markdown events throughout the year. The markdowns precede prominent holidays, such as the Super Bowl, Labour Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. The weeks including these holidays are weighted five times higher in valuation than non-holiday weeks. The business is facing a challenge due to unforeseen demand, resulting in stocks running out at times due to inaccurate demand estimation. The macroeconomic factors like CPI, Unemployment Index, etc. also play an important role in predicting the demand, but the business hasn’t been able to leverage these factors yet. As a part of this project, create a model to highlight the effects of markdowns on holiday weeks.

Project 5: Learn how leading Healthcare industry leaders make use of Data Science to leverage their business.

Domain: HealthCare

Description: Predictive analytics can be used in healthcare to mediate hospital readmissions. In healthcare and other industries, predictors are most useful when they can be brought into action. However, historical and real-time data alone are worthless without intervention. More importantly, to judge the efficiency and value of forecasting a trend and ultimately changing behavior, both the predictor and the intervention must be integrated back into the same system and workflow where the trend originally occurred.

Project 6: Understand how Insurance leaders like Berkshire Hathaway, AIG, AXA, etc. make use of Data Science by working on a real-life project based on Insurance.

Domain: Insurance

Description: The use of predictive analytics has increased greatly in insurance businesses, especially for the biggest companies, according to the 2013 Insurance Predictive Modeling Survey. While the survey showed an increase in predictive modeling throughout the industry, all the respondents from companies that write over $1 billion in personal insurance employ predictive modeling, compared to 69% of companies with less than that amount of premium.

Project 7: See how banks like Citigroup, Bank of America, ICICI, HDFC, etc. make use of Data Science to stay ahead of the competition.

Domain: Banking

Description: A Portuguese banking institution ran a marketing campaign to convince potential customers to invest in a bank term deposit. Its marketing campaigns were conducted through phone calls, and sometimes the same customer was contacted more than once. Your job is to analyze the data collected from the marketing campaign.

Project 8: Learn how Stock Markets, such as NASDAQ, NSE, and BSE leverage Data Science and Analytics to arrive at a consumable data from complex datasets.

Domain: Stock Market

Description: You need to import data using Yahoo data reader of the following companies: Yahoo, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google. Perform fundamental analytics including plotting closing price, plotting stock trade by volume, performing daily return analysis, and using pair plot to show the correlation between all the stocks.

Project 9: See how Data Science is used in the field of engineering by taking up this case study of MovieLens Dataset Analysis.

Domain: Engineering

Description: The GroupLens Research Project is a research group in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota. The researchers of this group are involved in many research projects related to the fields of information filtering, collaborative filtering, and recommender systems.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does online education work on a day-to-day basis?
Instructional methods, course requirements, and learning technologies can vary significantly from one online program to the next, but the vast bulk of them use a learning management system (LMS) to deliver lectures and materials, monitor student progress, assess comprehension, and accept student work. LMS providers design these platforms to accommodate a multitude of instructor needs and preferences.
Is online education as effective as face-to-face instruction?
Online education may seem relatively new, but years of research suggests it can be just as effective as traditional coursework, and often more so. According to a U.S. Department of Education analysis of more than 1,000 learning studies, online students tend to outperform classroom-based students across most disciplines and demographics. Another major review published the same year found that online students had the advantage 70 percent of the time, a gap authors projected would only widen as programs and technologies evolve.
Do employers accept online degrees?
All new learning innovations are met with some degree of scrutiny, but skepticism subsides as methods become more mainstream. Such is the case for online learning. Studies indicate employers who are familiar with online degrees tend to view them more favorably, and more employers are acquainted with them than ever before. The majority of colleges now offer online degrees, including most public, not-for-profit, and Ivy League universities. Online learning is also increasingly prevalent in the workplace as more companies invest in web-based employee training and development programs.
Is online education more conducive to cheating?
The concern that online students cheat more than traditional students is perhaps misplaced. When researchers at Marshall University conducted a study to measure the prevalence of cheating in online and classroom-based courses, they concluded, “Somewhat surprisingly, the results showed higher rates of academic dishonesty in live courses.” The authors suggest the social familiarity of students in a classroom setting may lessen their sense of moral obligation.
How do I know if online education is right for me?
Choosing the right course takes time and careful research no matter how one intends to study. Learning styles, goals, and programs always vary, but students considering online courses must consider technical skills, ability to self-motivate, and other factors specific to the medium. Online course demos and trials can also be helpful.
What technical skills do online students need?
Our platform typically designed to be as user-friendly as possible: intuitive controls, clear instructions, and tutorials guide students through new tasks. However, students still need basic computer skills to access and navigate these programs. These skills include: using a keyboard and a mouse; running computer programs; using the Internet; sending and receiving email; using word processing programs; and using forums and other collaborative tools. Most online programs publish such requirements on their websites. If not, an admissions adviser can help.
