Sobre o conteúdo

Learn both theory and application for basic methods that have been invented either for developing new concepts – principal components or clusters, or for finding interesting correlations – regression and classification. This is preceded by a thorough analysis of 1D and 2D data.

Programa de estudos

Week 1. Intro: Examples of data and data analysis problems; visualization.       


Week 2. 1D analysis. Feature scales. Histogram. Two common types of histograms: Gaussian and Power Law. Central values. Minkowski distance and data recovery view. Validation with Bootstrap.           


Week 3-4. 2D analysis cases:

(Both quantitative: Scatter-plot, linear regression, correlation and determinacy coefficients: meaning and properties. Both nominal: Contingency table, Quetelet index, Pearson chi-squared coefficient, its double meaning and visualization).                                                              

Week 5-6. Learning multivariate correlations

(Bayes approach and Naïve Bayes classifier with a Bag-of-words text model; Decision trees and criteria for building them.)                      


Week 7. Principal components (PCA) and SVD

(SVD model behind PCA: student marks as the product of subject factor scores and subject loadings. Application to deriving a hidden underlying factor. Data visualization with PCA. Conventional PCA and data normalization issues.)


Week 8. Clustering with k-means

(K-Means iterations and K-Means features   

K-Means criterion. Anomalous clusters and intelligent K-Means.)
