This course is specially developed for managers and decisionmakers that need to handle the foundations of data analysis for taking informed decisions on data-driven business, innovation path and strategies within the enterprise. It consists of introductory lectures spanning big data, machine learning, data valorisation and communication.
The course covers terminology and concepts, tools and methods, use cases and success stories of data science applications. The course explains what Data Science is and why it is so hyped, what value Data Science can create, what Data Science can solve, what the difference is between descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics, and what the roles of machine learning and artificial intelligence are.
From a more technical perspective, the course covers what supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised methods are, and what one can get
out of classification, clustering, and regression techniques; the role of NoSQL data models and technologies, and the role and impact of scalable
cloud- based computation platforms based on map-reduce and analogous paradigms, together with a description of platforms like Hadoop and Spark.
