About this course:

This course introduces students to the evolving domain of data science and the food chain of knowledge domains involved in its application. Students learn a wide range of challenges, questions, and problems that data science helps address in different domains, including social sciences, finance, health and fitness, and entertainment. The course addresses the key knowledge domains in data science, including data development and management, machine learning and natural language processing, statistical analysis, data visualization, and inference. The course includes case studies that require students to work on real-life data science problems. 
Prerequisites
Students are expected to have basic Python programming and basic statistics skills. If you do not have these skills, we suggest taking COM SCI X 450.00 Data Science Fundamentals before taking COM SCI X 450.1 Introduction to Data Science.
