Abstract: Data science uses a combination of mathematics, statistics and computer science to help us solve questions of importance in a large number fields. In this workshop we will introduce the underlying mathematical principles of the field, with example problems gleaned from a number of different industries. By the end of the workshop the participant will know enough data science to explore their own problems, and be ready for more intermediate and advanced courses.
Exploratory data analysis, regression modeling, clustering
Some basic R programming
