SIKS Tutorial "Data Science "



From May 12-13 2014, the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) organizes the tutorial "Data Science". The course will be given in English and is part of the Tutorial Program for SIKS-PhD -students. Although these courses are primarily intended for SIKS-PhD-students, other participants are not excluded. However, their number of passes will be restricted and depends on the number of SIKS-PhD -students taking the course.

Data Science is "the study of the generalizable extraction of knowledge from data" (source: Wikipedia). In the IKS context the data is often (enterprise) business data, web log data or open data. The different topics are mostly introduced with this context in mind.
