This program — designed in partnership with Alteryx, a leading provider of an end-to-end data science and analytics platform — prepares managers and executives to implement data science initiatives across their businesses.
Why should business leaders consider this course? According to Udacity CEO Gabe Dalporto, “The most successful businesses in the world today put data at the center of their culture and decision making. Udacity’s newest Executive Program equips business leaders to unlock the value of data in their organizations and achieve transformational business outcomes.”
Think about the role that Big Data plays in our day-to-day lives and how we contribute to it. Every time we tweet, send emails, search online, or ride in a connected car, we’re creating thousands of data points.
Those data sets are used by companies (both large and small) to help inform the creation and improvements of new products, services, and business strategies.
It’s predicted that by 2025, an estimated 463 exabytes of data will be created each day globally, reports Weforum.org. As more data is created, more companies have expressed a need for qualified employees with SQL skills (Structured Query Language, the first language of data analysis, and universal language for relational databases) to analyze and create actionable intelligence based on that data.

Today, Udacity is thrilled to announce the AI for Healthcare Nanodegree program as well as the AI for Healthcare in the time of COVID-19 Virtual Conference. Within the past decade, AI has transformed industries by powering the creation of new products, processes, and experiences that have enabled organizations to deliver more value to their customers at scale. The technology’s impact is apparent in Amazon’s AI-powered supply that has redefined the retail experience, and BMW’s AI-based models that have optimized the automotive manufacturing process.
The healthcare industry is no different. AI for healthcare is already showing early signs of adoption including the use of surgical robots, data analytics, and using deep learning to reduce diagnosis errors. What’s more, medical professionals and scientists across the globe are seeing the benefits of the practical application of AI in healthcare. For instance, AI-optimized techniques allowed scientists in China to recreate the novel coronavirus’ genome sequence in just one month. In contrast, it took researchers several months to do the same for the SARS virus in 2003.
