I compared top data science and machine learning courses and here’s what I think

We've all seen the data science and machine learning courses advertised on the internet. But what is a data science course, exactly? And should you be doing a machine learning course instead? I compare two popular data science and machine learning courses to help you decide if one is right for you.

Data Science

It is the in-depth examination of large amounts of data in a company's or organization's repository. This research includes determining where the data came from, analyzing its content, and determining how this data can get used to help the company grow in the future. 

An organization's data is always in one of two forms: structured or unstructured. When we analyze this data, we gain valuable information about business or market patterns, which gives the company a competitive advantage because they have increased their effectiveness by recognizing patterns in the data set.

Machine Learning

It is a subset of data science and is one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal. It's also sometimes known as artificial intelligence or machine learning, but don't let that confuse you. They all mean the same thing: techniques for making predictions about something based on past data.

If you're new to this topic, consider what machine learning can do:

  • Predict future customer behavior by looking at past purchases (like online shopping).
  • Make recommendations based on users' purchase history and preferences (like Netflix recommending movies based on previous viewing patterns).

What Makes These Two Techniques Different?

Data science includes machine learning. It's more about the process of data analysis, while machine learning is more about the process of data prediction.

Data scientists rely on statistics and mathematics to analyze large amounts of information from diverse sources, but machine learning only uses math. This means that when you need to predict something based on past events or trends, you can use either technique—you just have different tools for each task!

How to choose between Data Science and Machine learning?

First, you need to know that there are two main types of data science: descriptive and predictive.

Descriptive data scientists analyze large datasets to find patterns, explain trends and predict outcomes. You can use them for marketing research, fraud detection, or predicting the weather.

Predictive models use machine learning algorithms like neural networks (a type of artificial intelligence) or decision trees (a tree-based model) that make predictions based on collected training sets—the same results over time. 

Machine learning seems more applicable in some cases (like spam filtering), while data science might have better predictive power. In any case, both of these fields are extremely exciting and evolving rapidly!
