In the current society, it is essential in all fi elds to appropriately exploit "big data" for fi nding rules and/or makingpredictions/decisions. This course gives fundamental knowledges and basic skills for handling large-scale data sets with the aid ofcomputers.
Students will be able to apply basic knowledges on statistics for analyzing data and evaluating the obtained results mathematically.
classification, clustering, principal component analysis, dimension reduction, training/generalization errors, cross validation

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Based on quizzes in class/reports.
Preferred to have basic knowledge about linear algebra, analysis, and mathematical statistics.
Students of the doctor course are required to register XCO.T677 "Fundamentals of progressive data science" instead of XCO.T487"Fundamentals of data science."
