CREDIT HOURS: 3
The advent of low-cost storage and processing power coupled with ever increasing amounts of "born digital" data has created the new field of data science. The ability to achieve a specific goal or answer a business question by crunching through very large and complex databases is becoming a competitive advantage for businesses and leads to new discoveries in science and medicine. This course is an overview of the different processes that make up a data science project. While other fields concentrate on finding previously unknown knowledge or searchingfor a specific pattern, data science focuses on answering deep questions and making the conclusions accessible to the rest of the organization. This course requires the implementation of software and experimental design in order to complete the assignments.
