Webinar: Data visualization, preparation, and transformation with IBM Watson Studio

April 5, 2020

“Data is the new oil. It’s valuable, but if unrefined it cannot really be used.” -Clive Humby

Data is the new natural resource of our time. As individuals, we create enormous amounts of data in our connected world every day. Computers continuously get smarter and we have greater possibilities of building insights from data today.

Data science is a “concept to unify statistics, data analysis, machine learning, and their related methods”

Data visualizations make big and small data easier for the human brain to understand, and visualization also makes it easier to detect patterns, trends, and outliers in groups of data.

In this webinar we will discuss the concept of Data Science and its pipeline, then we will dive deeper into Data Visualization, the importance of it and best practices.

In the codelab we will demonstrate features within IBM® Watson™ Studio that help you visualize and gain insights into your data, then cleanse and transform your data to build high-quality predictive models.
