Pervasive Technologies, a company specialized in predictive solutions of Artificial Intelligence (AI), joins one more year the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) to offer the Executive Master in Big Data Science. Big Data Scientist’s position is among the so-called ‘professions of the future’, which is why the company has decided to once again invest in training in this field. A position that is in high demand, without doubt, in these new times, as these are professionals who are experts in new areas of knowledge becoming more and more widespread and necessary.
The master’s degree is addressed to professionals who want to go deeper into the fields of Big Data and advanced analytics, two clear trends worldwide. It has been designed with the aim of training professionals capable of making decisions by working with a large volume of data, thanks to advanced analytical techniques, both predictive and prescriptive. Among the subjects to be covered are machine learning, data mining and programming languages.
Companies in almost any sector were already immersed in profound technological changes in recent years, but now more than ever, so this field has become an opportunity for constant improvement thanks to Big Data. These technologies, which allow data to be processed in an appropriate manner, can provide companies with numerous benefits: automation, greater efficiency, robotisation, rapid reaction, prevention, etc., which translates into improvements in the quality of services. They also serve to reduce companies’ CO2 levels and thus help to care for the environment. It is worth mentioning that this is the first time that such advanced technology is available not only to large organisations, but also to SMEs.
The registration period for the course, which will start this month, is still open.
The opening session of the Master’s took place last Friday, 2 October, where the programme and teachers were presented to the new students. Rodolfo Lomascolo, Pervasive Technologies CEO and professor of the master’s degree, stated that “once again we are very satisfied with the participation of Pervasive Technologies in the UIC master’s degree, a programme that has already generated dozens of top-level professionals in the technology sector and specifically in Big Data Science”.
