Acads - Live Online Platform for Higher Education in Data Science

"I don't know what's the matter with people: they don't learn by understanding; they learn by some other way - by rote, or something. Their knowledge is so fragile!"

Richard P Feynman

Academy for Data Science (acads.org) has been established with an objective of imparting excellent education in the area of Data Science to all aspiring and enterprising individuals.
