OVERVIEW

The course provides a hands-on approach to predictive analytics. In.a few interactive lectures we learn the basic steps of any predictive analytics project: 1 understanding the problem, 2 identifying the machine learning tools to be used, 3 reviewing pros and cons of the available techniques, 4. looking for an appropriate data set, 5. running the algos and commenting the obtained results. Each student is then encouraged to find a project of suitable size and work on it.
