This course gives basic theories, methods, and algorithms of data science, data engineering, and AI to students those who have finished a literacy-level course study of data science and AI and wish to study a higher-level course. The curriculum is designed so that it provides an intermediate-level course study of data science and AI between literacy- and expert-level ones. The course would enable students to understand theories and methods deeply and achieve practical skills in problem solving through a variety of examples and exercises. Students are strongly recommended to successfully complete both the courses "Basics and Applications of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence I and II".
Students will be able to:
1) Understand significance of studying data science, as well as data analysis methods, and choose appropriate data analysis and visualization methods.
2) Understand roles of data engineering, representation methods of various data on a computer, and data acquisition/processing/accumulation techniques.
3) Understand history of AI, its technical background, AI ethics, machine learning and learning algorithms, neural networks and deep learning algorithms, and apply AI technology to problem solving.
Data-driven society, big data, database, data structure, database, annotation, Python, population, representative values, correlation, variance, probability distribution, random number
|✔ Specialist skills||✔ Intercultural skills||Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
To check students’ understanding, students are assigned a quiz at the end of every class.

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.
None. Lecture materials will be given in the class.
Lecture materials will be found on T2SCHOLA in advance and shared in Zoom lecture.
Grading is based on quizzes and term-end report.
Students must have successfully completed Information Literacy I, Information Literacy II, Computer Science I, and Computer Science II.
