Course Description

Data analytics and data science are popular terms, and skills in these areas are in great demand. Data Analytics means apply analytics/rules on data and find/organize Big Data in meaningful form for business users to make data driven decisions. In predictive modeling (also called predictive analytics) we seek to predict the value of a variable of interest (purchase/no purchase, fraudulent/not fraudulent, malignant/benign, amount of spending, etc.) by using "training" data where the value of this variable is known.  Once a statistical model is built with the training data ("trained"), it is then applied to data where the value is unknown.
