Introduction to Data Science

November 7, 2015

On 11th-14th January 2016 I’ll be visiting the School of IT at Monash University Malaysia, which is located within the Bandar Sunway township in Malaysia just outside Kuala Lumpur city.  My talk should be on the Monday (11th).  The slides are here (available temporarily).

Title:  Introduction to Data Science

This 2 hour seminar works through some of the emerging highlights of Data Science, reviewing major videos, blogs and articles that helped mold the field. This seminar looks at processes and case studies to understand the many facets of working with data, and the significant effort in Data Science over and above the core task of Data Analysis.  So the series is a broad introduction to working with data rather than a deep dive into the world of statistics. The seminar is aimed at those with an IT background who either want to start in Data Science or work with it, for instance in management or as a data engineer.  Attendees should have a knowledge of information technology and computer science.

The talk will be extracted from our FIT5145 unit given in the Master of Data Science.
