Toyota_Financial_ServicesI just completed a short Boot-Camp style corporate training gig for Toyota Financial Services. The 3 full-day session was organized by UC Irvine Extension as part of their Data Science program. I had a blast with the Toyota group consisting of Big Data and BI managers, analysts, IT personnel, and programmers. It was a very insightful group with a sincere desire to learn R, data science and machine learning. I came away quite impressed with Toyota (too bad they’re moving to Texas).
