Certificate in Cloud Data Analytics - Visual Analytics CSCI 6612   Visual Analytics
This course will introduce the concepts of Visual Analytics (VA). VA is a multi-disciplinary domain that combines data visualization with machine learning and other automated techniques to help people make sense of data. Students will be introduced to the design of visual representations supporting tasks to go from findings to insights based on data. Topics include basic concepts of information visualization and machine learning; visual analytics of evolving phenomena; analysis of spatial and temporal data sets; visual social media analytics; and the visual analytics of text and multimedia collections. Students will prototype visual analytics applications using existing toolkits, coupling machine learning and visualization methods. Students will gain competence in performing data analysis and visualization tasks in different application domains.
NOTES: Students must be proficient in at least one or multiple programming languages that support the design of interactive visual interfaces and the execution of data mining/machine learning libraries and toolkits.
