Project 3: See how banks like Citigroup, Bank of America, ICICI and HDFC make use of data science to stay ahead of the competition.

Domain: Banking

Project 4: Learn how leading healthcare industry leaders make use of data science to leverage their business.

In healthcare and other industries, predictors are most useful when they can be transferred into action, but 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.
