Data Science for Albertans

Data Science for Albertans logoLeverage your business’s data

Data science is a big buzzword right now. But beyond the hype, what does it really mean, and how does it impact Canadian entrepreneurs and businesses?

As the modern digital economy continues to evolve, Alberta businesses that embrace and harness data science concepts and tools — including machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data analytics — will have a strong competitive advantage.

This can sound like a daunting task but you don't have to go it alone.

Cybera’s Data Science for Albertans project provides Alberta entrepreneurs, business and social enterprises with training and access to data science expertise. You will learn methodologies for leveraging your organization's data, and also the difference between data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, and what tools you should be focusing on.

Free services available to Alberta businesses, social innovators and startups:

  • Introductory and advanced workshops on data science tools and methodologies
  • Data science tools (such as Jupyter and RStudio)
  • Consultations on data science projects
  • Industry fellowship program (next cohort tbd)

Industry consultation example

Keylo is an Edmonton-based tech startup that matches potential property sellers/buyers with a realtor who is most likely to achieve their goal. They wanted to create a better data-driven algorithm to provide accurate realtor recommendations, but did not have the financial resources to hire a consultant or build an in-house data science team. Cybera’s data scientists worked with Keylo to develop a proof-of-concept data model, and provided insights on how to iterate their services.

"The biggest benefit of working with Cybera has been the knowledge we've gained about how to approach data science problems," says Keylo founder and CEO Ryan Mracek. "I feel like I can make confident decisions using these technologies now. Thanks to Cybera's help, we'll be in a position to compete with bigger companies that much sooner."
