For 10 years TransOrg Analytics has recruited the brightest talent from the best campuses, however while training them we noticed something peculiar. These promising young students with exceptional analytical abilities, and theoretical knowledge couldn’t apply these skills to solve a real life business problem. To address the same, we designed a two months accelerated data science training program for our new hires, the results were stunning. The young professionals who were fazed by the volume of data, were now in love with it, to say the least.
The observation was just an indication of something wrong, and soon we realised what it was. The majority courses which promise to teach data science, teach it rather theoretically, and fail to paint the larger picture. Only a practitioner can paint a larger picture of how tools, algorithms and techniques come together to solve a problem using data science. Data Science in these courses was taught as an end in itself, whereas we, the practitioners, know that it is a means to lead to better, faster problem solving.
Hence Pickl.ai came into being to bridge the gap between data science skills required to actually solve a business problem and the data science currently being taught by a myriad of online courses.
Pickl has marked it's presence in the following places over the duration since its inception
