Dataiku Academic Provides Free Enterprise-Quality Data Science Software to Students, Teachers, and R
Posted OnMay 9, 2017 by Geeta Priya
Dataiku , the maker of the enterprise data science platform Dataiku Data Science Studio (DSS), has announced the Dataiku Academic Program – an initiative to provide completely freelicensing, support, and learning resources for teachers, researchers, and students in data science and business analytics fields. The company looks to enable the next generation of data scientists by helping students learn data science concepts within Dataiku DSS, the software platform that companies around the world use to develop and run advanced data science solutions.
The platform allows users to leverage the fundamental data science coding languages (R, Python, and SQL) as well as the most state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms and big data technologies (Scala, Spark, and Hadoop) to provide a complete tool for data science students as well as their teachers.
The visual interface of Dataiku DSS- further improved with the recent release of version 4.0 - further empowers students with a less technical background to learn the data mining process, and build data projects from raw data to predictive application, without having to write a single line of code.
In addition, the inclusion of numerous open source technologies - from programming languages to machine learning libraries - also makes for a faster onboarding and learning process for students new to data science. Real time collaboration allows students to work on group projects simultaneously, or follow a professor’s actions live.

For researchers, the platform can be used to create powerful models and predictions using the most recent technologies in data science and machine learning.
“Our goal at Dataiku is to help everyone, everywhere, with their data analysis and predictive modelling skills,” said Florian Douetteau, CEO of Dataiku. “A vital part of that is to provide free licenses for our software and specific support resources for academics, researchers, and personal learning. We are proud to be providing our technology for free to help the next generation of data scientists learn, create, and succeed.”
The Dataiku Academic Program will provide students, teachers, researchers, and academic institutions with free licenses of the Dataiku DSS platform and access to a multitude of resources and benefits, provided for free by the company, including:
Exclusive training material.
Visibility on the Dataiku blog, social media, and recruitment channels.
Student events, meetups, and hackathons.
Dataiku DSS Enterprise Edition setup for students on the cloud or on in-house servers.
Certifications for students
Expert guest lectures from Dataiku Data Scientists in their classrooms.
With a Dataiku Academic license users can build a course, work on a student project, conduct research, go through the Dataiku specialized certification, or simply make Dataiku DSS accessible on student and faculty computers – allowing students and faculty to learn or create data science applications with a cutting-edge software platform.
