Interest in data science. Basic knowledge of statistics. This class is limited to 18 students. The class will be held in English.
Data is increasingly seen as a driving force behind many industries, ranging from data-driven start-ups to traditional manufacturing companies. Recent years have been marked by the hype around big data technologies and the implications that go along with it. In response to these developments, data science has become one of the most demanded specializations. Against this background, this class will introduce students to the fundamentals of data science, using Python. Specifically, the course will start with a short introduction into Python, covering such topics as syntax, basic data types, assignments and reference semantics, complex data types, functions, control of flow, modules, classes and objects, iPython, and debugging. In the next step, the students will be taught the basics of web scraping using Beautiful Soup library as well as learn to access data via dedicated APIs (Facebook, Twitter). In the follow-up sessions, the capabilities of NumPy, pandas, matplotlib, seaborn, and also Scikit Learn libraries will be explored to empower students with approaches to data analysis and visualization.
