Shaun Dippnall, CEO of Explore Data Science Academy (EDSA), sat down with Careers Portal to explain the advantages of a data-driven society.

EDSA is a global, cutting edge Data Science Academy which teaches Data Science, Data Engineering, Machine Learning and related skills to equip people for lucrative careers of the future.

In a time where having valuable and reliable information and basing our decisions on them are of utmost importance, EDSA believes that a data-driven society is the way to go.

"You can use these algorithms and tools in a subtley negative way", said Dippnall in explaining that people sometimes optimise data in ways that aren't sustainable or the right thing.

He therefore believes that using data is a powerful thing and you can use it in any part of your life. Look at the facts and making a decision based off of factual information is good idea rather than a subjective blind guess, he explained.

A data-driven society could then see you making better decisions, not only for you but your community as well and would benefit you in the long run.

EDSA prides themelves on their innovative, practical and real-world-readiness approach to learning.

Careers Advice

Welding is one of the many kinds of trades that can provide a decent living and secure job. There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
