In this course, you will learn how to use data mining techniques to uncover interesting patterns and meaningful insights that are often hidden beneath the surface. It covers several machine learning techniques that range from classification to various prediction methodologies. On top of the theoretical aspects, the course gives students the opportunity of hands-on experience by experimenting with empirical data sets to find intriguing patterns that the business can capitalize on.
In this course, you will explore collaboration and communities of practice from a theoretical and practical perspective.
