Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Digital Twins, Blockchain, Internet of Things, Smart Sensors, Drones - what are they and how can they be used to solve problems in energy, agriculture, water, climate, forestry, sustainability and other clean technology sectors?

If you're trying to apply data science in clean tech sectors, you've probably run into these challenges.

  • Machine learning and data science courses focus on problems facing internet companies - like building recommendation engines or detecting spam in email. However, problems in energy, water, agriculture or any clean tech sector are different - you're often trying to combine different types of data - small data, big data, spatial data and temporal data, you're building models for natural systems that are difficult to control and have several unknowns, or you need to combine legacy data sources and systems with new technology.
  • Information about data science tools, algorithms, data sources and the latest technology for different clean technology sectors are scattered and difficult to find.
  • Coding is not something you do every day - maybe it's been a while since your last coding class. Or it's been a while since you last used statistics - and you're not sure how to get started using data science since it needs both programming and statistics.

Welcome to Ecoformatics!

We help professionals apply machine learning and data science to solve problems in clean technology through our online courses and workshops. And to do it flexibly, when and where you want, on your own time, at your own pace and with pricing options that work for students to companies.

If you're new to data science and its applications in clean technology, our free plan will get you started with the basics. You'll get an introduction to how data science can be applied in different clean technology sectors, careers and jobs in this field, and a guide to installing and using common tools and languages like QGIS and Python.

If you're already in the field and want to keep up with what's happening with the technology and the market, we've got the latest in research, technology and market news with our premium plan. You'll get access to courses, live workshops and reports on applying the latest data science tools and models, building integrated systems with sector specific models and data science tools, finding novel solutions by thinking outside the box and looking at the Earth as a system, and information about the market, companies and funding.
