3.主題：The International Road Federation (IRF Global), in association with the South Africa Roads Association (SARF), is proud to present a new online course titled: Practical Data Science for Roadway Professionals.
With the recent advances in data science and artificial intelligence in every industry, including transportation infrastructure and highway operations, roadway professionals need to learn the fundamental components of data science to implement them in their day-to-day practice. Contrary to the general belief, to understand and implement these tools and techniques in roadway construction, operations, and management, no prior coding or computer programming experience is needed.
The main goal of this online training is to introduce the fundamentals of practical data science relevant to transportation and roadway experts. Various aspects, such as using different data processing tools, data visualization, data mining, and artificial intelligence, will be discussed through online hands-on tutorials.
Participants will be guided through various interactive course modules and hands-on tutorials to develop skills and knowledge to employ multiple data science tools on real-world example datasets. Roadway professionals, highway practitioners, and local highway agency engineers will learn and benefit from the various aspects of practical data science that can be employed and implemented in their operations.
