Inhalte der LV

One core element of modern Data Science are computational methodologies from the field of Machine Learning as well as Statistical Learning. The main methods will be discussed to allow for handling Classification, Clustering as well as Association Analysis and Collaborative Filtering tasks. Real-life examples and data sets will be used. The statistical programming language R will be used to solve problems numerically.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

Students are able to identify a data science problem and choose the appropriate technology to solve the problem. Furthermore, the students are able to implement the respective algorithms using the statistical programming language R by selecting useful extension packages. Upon completion of the course participants will be able to:

1. Analyze data science problems structurally and find the appropriate method to solve the respective problem.
2. Solve data science problems using R.

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

You are allowed to skip one unit at maximum.


At the beginning theoretical foundations of Machine Learning technologies will be presented. Furthermore, an introduction to R for Data Science will be given. Over the course of the lecture student presentations will be a central part.
