The course by weeks
Students will be “working” for Blackwell Electronics as data analysts using Rapid Miner, a software platform that provides an integrated environment for data preparation, machine learning, deep learning, text mining, and predictive analytics. . The student’s job is to use data mining and machine-learning techniques to investigate patterns in Blackwell’s sales data and provide insight into customer buying trends and preferences.
You will learn the algorithmic and organizational skills required to scale data analysis to large server farms, computing clouds, and the web, including an understanding of the design and implementation differences between single-computer and cloud-scale programs, analytics, and data processing.
Students will learn to use the R statistical programming language to perform visualizations, then to generate descriptive statistics and predictive models using time series regression techniques and statistical classifiers. Finally, students will present the results to the start-up’s management, explaining strengths and weaknesses of the approaches that were implemented and making suggestions for further improvement.
"I was astounded how much I learnt in such a short time. The ethos of their education platform is ‘to learn by doing’. This is certainly the case. By the end of week 3, I was already proficient in using Machine Learning Techniques and presenting findings as a data analyst. With no prior knowledge! Having your fellow students to bounce off, we all became great friends and discussed all things data. The course is very insightful, and opened a window into a world I never knew existed. All the staff at Ubiqum are super friendly, and you can approach them with anything. They will go out of their way to get things sorted and make sure your time at Ubiqum is enjoyable. "
