Syllabus

Have you ever wondered how mathematics can be used to solve big data problems? This course will show you how. Mathematics is everywhere, and with the rise of big data it becomes a useful tool when extracting information and analysing large datasets. Learn how maths underpins big data analysis We will begin by explaining how maths underpins many of the tools that are used to manage and analyse big data. We will show you how very different applied problems can have common mathematical aims, and therefore can be addressed using similar mathematical tools. We will then proceed to introduce three such tools, based on a linear algebra framework. These tools and the problems that they address are: eigenvalues and eigenvectors for ranking graph Laplacian for clustering singular value decomposition for data compression. Develop your analysis skills with big data case studies We will show you how these methods can be applied to a variety of case studies, including ranking websites, profiling leukaemia patients, taking selfies, and so on. Our hands-on approach will allow you to develop your analytic skills using self-contained datasets, deepen your understanding of the underlying mathematical methods, and explore how these methods can be applied to big data in your area.

Platform

Futurelearn

FutureLearn is a massive open online course (MOOC) learning platform founded in December 2012.

It is a company launched and wholly owned by The Open University in Milton Keynes, England. It is the first UK-led massive open online course learning platform, and as of March 2015 included 54 UK and international University partners and unlike similar platforms includes four non-university partners: the British Museum, the British Council, the British Library and the National Film and Television School.
