Learning objectives - Knowledge
- Explain different methods and algorithms regarding data collection, data processing, data analysis, and data visualisation.
Learning objectives - Skills
- Implement and apply different methods and algorithms as stated above.
Learning objectives - Competences
- Identify relevant problems within the subject area of the module.
- Assess, select and apply methods within the subject area of the module.
- Explain and discuss different methods within the subject area of the module.
- Provide a proper documentation regarding the findings of the project.
- Communicate findings in a clear and understandable manner.
The course will consist of two parts, namely theory (lectures) and practice (a project).
Data science is the extraction of knowledge from data. In particular it focuses on the collection, filtering, processing, creation and distribution of data. Dramatic growth in the scale and complexity of data that can be collected and analysed (Big Data) is affecting all aspects of work and society. This implies that development of effective and ethical ways of using vast amounts of data is a significant challenge to science and to society as a whole. Therefore, the main focus of this course will be on techniques and methods for data analysis and decision making, which requires interdisciplinary research in many areas, including databases, data processing, machine learning algorithms, statistics, and data visualization.
Broader understanding of the theory and practice of above stated algorithms and methods as well as a deep understanding of several selected methods.
