This course is intended for learners who have basic R or programming background, and want to apply statistics, machine learning, information
visualization, data analysis, and text analysis techniques to gain new insight into data. The class is taught in a tutorial format using the multiple
library, and only a minimal statistics background is expected, and the first course contains a refresh of these basic concepts. There are no
geographic restrictions. Learners with a formal training in Computer Science but without formal training in data science will still find the skills they
acquire in these courses valuable in their studies and careers.
