Description: This course is an introduction to modern data science. Data science is the study of how to extract actionable, non-trivial knowledge from data. The course will focus on software tools used by practitioners of modern data science, the mathematical and statistical models that are employed in conjunction with such software tools and the applications of these tools and systems to different problems and domains. In particular, this class explores the use of these tools and models in the analysis of “big” data, that is datasets that are too large to be analyzed on a typical personal computer.
