ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) for Big Data

Why ETL?

Data, in its ubiquity, comes from various places and in various formats. A key challenge of data mining is synthesizing information from disparate sources into a form amenable for analysis. Data is found in relational databases, various text formats, online through APIs, and even scattered across many webpages which must be scraped. To compound the problem, the real world is messy. Frequently datafiles are malformatted, data points are missing or faulty, and data is mislabeled and miscategorized in unpredictable ways. These challenges must be addressed regardless of whether the final goal is to draw up some descriptive charts in an Excel spreadsheet or to train a deep neural network.

Machine Learning

Why study Machine Learning?

Machine learning is a set of techniques for automatically finding patterns in large sets of data. Such patterns are not easily found by human analysts because they are either too non-intuitive to ever be considered or too subtle, involving the combination of many variables in a delicate balance that is difficult or impossible for a human to determine.

Statistical Analysis using IBM SPSS

Course Objective

Data is the new frontier of 21st century. According to a Harvard Business Report by Thomas H. Davenport  and D. J. Patil (2012) data science is going to be the hottest job of 21st century and data analysts have a very bright career ahead. From academic world to corporate sector, and from service and financial institutions like banks to market researchers the data is being used and treated in various ways  like  deriving business insight, understand consumer behaviour, exist-poll forecast or predict the outcome of football worldcup (Goldman Sachs did it and got surprized!),  develop objective plans for new ventures, study the brand image, or write a scholarly articles in high impact journals  and develop high quality thesis/project work. A good knowledge of quantitative data analysis is a sine qua none for progress in academic and corporate world. Keeping this in mind this course has been designed in such way that students, researchers, teachers and corporate professionals who want to equip themselves with sound skills of data analysis and wish to progress with this skill can learn it in in-depth and interesting manner using IBM SPSS Statistics-one of the earliest and most popular statistical data analysis software package till date.

Probability and Statistics

Why Study Probability and Statistics?

Probability and statistics are the classic mathematical tools for making sense of large sets of data. The simplest use of statistics is to determine the mean, median, mode, and variance of a dataset. These quantities, referred to as summary statistics, provide us with a way of reducing a long list of numbers into a few which characterize the initial set. Statistics is a critical tool for interpreting and comparing sets of data. Students will learn not only how to compute these quantities, but also how to interpret them in the context of business decisions.

Data Visualization

Why Data Visualization?

 A picture is worth a thousand words – especially when you have data and you are trying to understand its structure, the relationship between its variables and glean interesting insights from it. This is especially true for big data, which could include thousands of variables, making it necessary to use some kind of pictures to help us wrap our heads around it. Data visualization is the art of presenting data in an intuitive and easy to understand graphical format. The idea of using pictures to understand data has been around for a long time in the form of maps and graphs. Now with the advent of data science and big data technologies, data visualization has become a rapidly evolving field that combines art and science to enable intuitive and fluent communication of information. Anyone working with data must learn to present data in a way that yields insight and understanding. This means understanding data visualization and the principles of human perception, cognition and communication that are the cornerstones of effective visualizations. In this course, students learn the concepts and principles that enable effective and efficient graphics and visualizations. Hands-on exercises walk students through various types of charts and graphs, visual constructs for networks and text, and interactive web applications
