CAP4773/CIS6930 - Projects in Data Science
Fall 2014 Section 18B9/13GE
Advanced topics in data science, individual projects in application areas such as text and image extraction and retrieval, knowledge base construction, pattern mining, social networks, bioinformatics, computational fluid dynamics, vision, etc.
- Data Structures and Algorithms (COP3530) or equivalent.
- Introduction to Data Science or equivalent.
- Optional but preferred: Information and Database Systems I (CIS 4301) and an introductory course to probabilities and statistics are pre-requisites.
Course ObjectivesIn order to address the growing need from both industry and academia (e.g., medical and bio-informatics, financial, law enforcement, economics, decision support, social networks) for big data analytics skills including, data management, data mining, machine learning and data visualization, this course is part of the three-course series in the Data Science curriculum. Building on the foundations of databases and data mining, this course will guide students to work in groups on individualized projects in interest areas such as text and image extraction and retrieval, knowledge base construction, pattern mining, bioinformatics, vision and imaging, sensor and social networks, computational neuroscience, medical informatics and scientific data analysis.
