Course description and aims

The goal of this lecture is that students understand basic data analysis with applications to practical problems. Both practical tools and basic concepts are introduced, however, students should not choose academic lecture according to practicality. The true study based on mathematics gives you the wide viewpoints and deep insights.

Student learning outcomes

Let's study and understand basic points of data analysis with applications to practical problems. Then you understand the limit of data analysis.


data analysis, real world, tool, the limit of data analysis, and true study

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

For data analysis methods, their mathematical foundations and applications to practical problems are explained. Data analysis is a set of tools, which should be employed in a correct manner.

Prerequisites (i.e., required knowledge, skills, courses, etc.)

Probability Theory and Statistics are necessary. Probability theory based on measure theory is not used in this lecture, however, it is very important, hence I recommend that students had better learn it.
