IDM - Institute of Data and Marketing

Southampton Data Science Academy and Institute of Data and Marketing

The IDM has partnered with the Southampton Data Science Academy to offer a new AI and Machine Learning for Marketers course. Courses will demystify AI and empower participants to develop strategies to take advantage of the opportunities ahead.

It will also help professionalise AI & Data Science across the marketing profession to embed a responsible and ethical approach and ensure an appropriate balance between humans and machines. Just as blue collar industries were transformed by industrialisation so AI will change the world of work for white collar professions.

In the last two decades, the marketing industry has been on a steady path to learning how to unlock the value of data to improve customer experience and to understand, attract and retain customers. In the next two decades, Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents an opportunity to accelerate and enhance the ways organisations harness data, spot trends more effectively and shift towards predictive rather than historical data analysis. AI will enable machines to automate processes so people are able to work on higher value activity.

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) is working with the Southampton Data Science Academy (SDSA) to present a certificate in data science jointly accredited by the Web Science Institute at the University of Southampton.

Initiated in response to demand from IFoA members, the Certificate is an introduction to the concepts, tools and techniques used in data science and their relevance within an actuarial context.

The Data Science Certificate is a part-time, online course which will require approximately 10 hours of study per week, across an eight-week period, with an additional two weeks to complete the final assignment. There’s no requirement for those undertaking the course to have any minimum programming skills.

Why should actuaries complete this certificate? UK Skills Champion for AI Dame Wendy Hall explains in this video:
