Course Overview

Ever wondered how companies like Amazon know more about you? Ever wondered how weather data is represented in the news? Using interdisciplinary concepts, we will learn how to tackle big data. Complex data sets are being generated continuously. Many questions arise as to what these data are telling us. Are we missing something? How do we look for signals in these large datasets? Using computer programs like Excel and R programming we will learn how to manage, sort and represent these data. Students will be encouraged to identify a data set related to a real world problem and use the tools learned in class to tell their stories.
