The Chamber Academy, established to provide work-based training programs, recently concluded a full-day workshop on ‘Introduction to Big Data and Data Analysis’.

Chamber Academy, in collaboration with VShare, conducted the workshop for professionals in the banking and business sector. Chathuranga Abeysinghe, who has over eight years of industry experience in finance, operations, and IT in relation to data science, was the resource person for the day.

Beginning with an introduction into big data and its nature, the session delved into demystifying AI, organisational analytics, and how to get started with visualisation tools.

Abeysinghe walked the participants through the basics of data, and how much more relevant it would become in the future, especially with inevitable global digitisation.

“Industry 4.0 is a cultural shift – a conduit between human, and digital,” he said, adding that more ‘routine’ and ‘logical’ jobs will soon be taken over by machines; while those which require creativity and human interaction will thrive.

The interactive session, which featured a problem-solving activity and games, wrapped up with each participant receiving a Chamber Academy certificate upon completing the course.
