Before deciding to join DSTI, I had a career in Human Resources, which means that my memories of math were old and vague, and I had never done any programming.
I followed both the MSc in Data Science and the Advanced MSc in IS and Artificial Intelligence (I was the original student on the Sophia Antipolis campus!) during two years.
The staff and teachers really helped me develop and transition to the technicality of my new Data Science profile, and I found the programme extremely thorough, which is important to not only know how to use algorithms, but also understand how they work.
During my studies at DSTI, I was an intern in an insurance company where I worked on linking external data to specific records in their database (record linkage), and I also was an intern in a startup that makes long-term predictions on air traffic for existing and potential air routes.
Since I graduated, I've been a Consultant at KP Consulting, working on various projects such customer churn alerts for a shipping company, price adaptation for an industry, or technical/business coaching for a start-up.
