Applications of Machine Learning in Data Analysis


QAC 385
Fall 2017
Section: 01  
Certificates: Applied Data Science
Course Cluster: Data Analysis Minor

The course provides a broad overview of machine learning algorithms and focuses on their application in data mining. Building on a basic background of regression analysis, and following a learning-by-doing approach, students are introduced to data mining tools and techniques that are used to identify patterns and relationships in large and complex data. While the emphasis is on intuition and application rather than theoretical results, through different case studies, students are introduced to the fundamentals of the different methods and learn how to conceptualize a problem, analyze it using appropriate tools, and communicate their results.
