Introduction to Data Science
With over 7,000 certificates awarded, the Coursera MOOC Introduction to Data Science was sponsored and developed by the eScience Institute. Introduce yourself to the basics of data science and leave armed with practical experience extracting value from big data.
This Coursera specialization provides a case-based introduction to the exciting, high-demand field of machine learning. You’ll learn to analyze large and complex datasets, build applications that can make predictions from data, and create systems that adapt and improve over time. In the final Capstone Project, you’ll apply your skills to solve an original, real-world problem through implementation of machine learning algorithms.
In the class projects you will build your own implementations of machine learning algorithms and apply them to problems like spam filtering, clickstream mining, recommender systems, and computational biology. This will get you as close to becoming a machine learning expert as you can in ten weeks!
