Description

This course provides a comprehensive survey of the core vocabulary and methods of data science, data analytics, and machine learning.

Data science is a rapidly spreading field that combines statistical analysis, data management, computation, and substantive expertise, with the goal of improving decision-making in business, government, administration, law, and just about every other field.

One of the key challenges for decision-makers and managers is to understand what makes for good data science, and how the evidence from this field should be used in evaluation and decision-making.

The focus of this course is on examples of good and bad data science, with real-world applications from government, business, and law. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with the concepts of data science and will have learned how to evaluate quantitative evidence and how to design new studies using big data and data scientific tools.

Course outcomes

  • A comprehensive top-level understanding of the core concepts and methods of data science, including data management, data analysis, machine learning, and statistical learning.
