Data scientists tackle questions about the future. They start with big data, characterized by the three V’s: volume, variety and velocity. Then, they use it as fodder for algorithms and models. The most cutting-edge data scientists, working in machine learning and AI, make models that automatically self-improve, noting and learning from their mistakes.
Data scientists have changed almost every industry. In medicine, their algorithms help predict patients’ side effects. In sports, their models and metrics have redefined “athletic potential.” Data science has even tackled traffic, with route-optimizing models that capture typical rush hours and weekend lulls.
Back in 2008, data science made its first major mark in the health care industry. Google staffers discovered they could map flu outbreaks in real-time by tracking location data on flu-related searches. It demonstrated the serious potential of data science in health care.
At Staford, in the subject Information Practices, students of class 12 keep trying to use their knowledge of Data Sciences to come up with great ideas which can be helpful to the society. With this in mind, students of class 12 developed a Covid Tracker Application with an objective to help people by letting them know their probability percentage of getting infected by CORONA Virus without doing an actual test. This software project is also aimed to help everyone to take necessary precautions as and suggest people with high tendency, the ways to avoid getting infected by the virus.
Challenges will always exist. However, we at Staford are always proud of our students and their ability to rise above any situation and deliver the best results no matter how hard the circumstances are.
