Data science is an interdisciplinary field concerning scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured. This course presents the key four aspects of data science: data acquisition and preparation for investigation (scrapping, wrangling, cleaning, sampling, management) to guarantee high quality and quick and reliable access, exploratory data analysis to generate hypotheses and intuition, modelling based on statistical/machine learning and correct communication of the analysis outcomes through visualisation, storytelling and reporting. Lectures and tutorials emphasise the practical use of these aspects and prepare students for developing real-world data-driven applications.
