About Our Founder

IT Finance Training Expert

ANCIF was founded in 2008 by Dr. Alex Dong, Ph.D. Dr. Alex Dong first began teaching public short courses on statistics application in 2009, and he has continued to offer that course every year since then. In 2012 he began offering a public course on Categorical Data Analysis. In 2013, he added Missing Data to the course roster.

More recent additions include the collaboration of statistics with data mining to full fill the new technology scenario such as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, etc. Statistics and data mining are two branches in data analysis. In particular, statistics is widely used in economy and data mining is widely used in science. This situation is changing quickly. Based on the big data background, more and more economy problems need data mining knowledge to assist as well.
