Description
The term "Data Science" is a recent one that captures the value of analyzing and interpreting data sets, particularly unstructured information of the sort generated by online interactions or other "messy" data that is incomplete or noisy. The course will involve programming assignments that investigate these kinds of data sets, and it will borrow techniques and algorithms from machine learning, data mining, and applied statistics. Because the field is new, there are relatively few canonical resources, but a text under consideration (even if only for a reference) is one used at Syracuse University which is freely available at http://jsresearch.net/groups/teachdatascience/
