New York University has just launched some Data Science programs via the new Center for Data Science.
… to establish the country’s leading data science training and research facilities at NYU.
Part of the announcement is an M.S. in Data Science. Applications for the initial class, starting Fall 2013, are now being accepted. The Center for Data Science also plans to offer Ph.D. degrees via the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science departments. I am not sure if an official Ph.D. degree in Data Science is being planned.
This is great news!
New York University is offering a Large Scale Machine Learning course starting later this month. This is NOT a MOOC, so it is not open to everyone. However, the lecture videos will be posted and possibly the other class handouts. This is not an introductory course, so knowledge of machine learning is a prerequisite. The course is being taught by John Langford of Microsoft Research and Yann LeCun of NYU.
For more about the course, see the original blog announcement.
