Leerdoelen  At the end of the course, the student is able to:


Omschrijving  You learn some fundamental principles about data preprocessing and discovery, analysis and evaluation. We will look at big data analytics, handson practicals, theory and methods. Some practicals contain realworld data science problems (taken from Astronomy and Medicine) for which the full datasciencelifecycle is expected to be performed by each student team. Since it is an introduction course we will have a broad overview of general principles including specific examples and references to the other Master courses which provide more indepth analysis of the specific topics. We will cover the following aspects with respect to data mining:
These topics give a broad overview of challenges with respect to data science and methodologies. Practical assignment work is done in groups in which participants will be automatically assigned within the first 2 weeks of the course optimized for interdisciplinary aiming to simulate a realistic data science project team composition. Groups will have to present their work in front of the class for selected assignments. Attendance to some lectures might be mandatory (details will be announced in the first lecture).
