About the program

Data Science is an interdisciplinary research field characterized using scientific methods, primarily computational, statistical, and mathematical, to develop algorithms aimed at extracting knowledge from a large volume of data. For example, this includes analyzing thousands of texts from court judgments to determine the coherence of their decisions.

The data scientist is the professional responsible for uncovering these hidden insights within vast datasets.

Artificial Intelligence encompasses a set of computational, mathematical, and engineering techniques aimed at training computers to simulate human activities. By extension, this term also applies to processes that were once thought to be exclusive to humans, such as self-driving cars and smart homes.

Machine learning is a subfield of artificial intelligence that enables computers to learn from data or past experiences without being explicitly programmed for it. These techniques enable them to improve their algorithms by testing them first with established data and progressively approaching a solution to the proposed problem with each iteration.

All of this makes Data Science and Artificial Intelligence one of the most attractive professions of the moment.
