In this class, Computer Science students will team up with students in other disciplines to work on a research problem that requires significant computation-intensive data analysis. All students will learn the fundamental techniques of such analysis. The specific techniques to be learned will be determined by the research problems; some that we might cover are clustering, component analysis, Bayesian analysis, and time-series analysis. The Computer Science students will be responsible for developing a well-written software platform that can be used for the project-specific analysis. The students from other disciplines will fully develop their research proposal and produce an appropriate research paper describing the project and its results.
