3 Hours; 3 Credits

The aim of this course is to provide the students with experience in applying mathematical models, cutting-edge algorithms, and large-scale computing resources to the analysis of big data in real-world settings. Subjects to be covered will be drawn from areas such as time series analysis, mathematical modeling, formulation of algorithms, and natural language processing. Students will learn to use MATLAB programming language or an equivalent platform to formulate models, evaluate data, uncover significant factors, estimate parameter values, and predict outcome values required for business decisions.
