This course introduced basic data science concepts behind turning data into actionable insights and knowledge. In addition, the course will emphasize the development of necessary programming skills needed for doing data science. Students will learn and use the Python programming language along with a focus on learning applied statistical inference, machine learning, data visualization, text analysis, and social network analysis techniques. The course takes a hands-on approach and no prior programming experience is expected.
