Learning from data in order to gain useful predictions and insights. This course introduces methods for five key facets of an investigation: data wrangling, cleaning, and sampling to get a suitable data set; data management to be able to access big data quickly and reliably; exploratory data analysis to generate hypotheses and intuition; prediction based on statistical methods such as regression and classification; and communication of results through visualization, stories, and interpretable summaries.
We will be using Python for all programming assignments and projects. All lectures will be posted here and should be available 24 hours after meeting time. You will also be able to find the Labs and Videos here as well.
