This unit covers data analytical concepts, techniques and algorithms and students will explore how these can be applied to data analytics and visualisation. Advanced analytical methods including clustering, classification, regression analysis, time series and text analysis will be covered. The understanding and application of data analytics can help in effective decision making and to gain new insights from large data sets. Visualisation will assist with presenting large and complex data sets and outcomes.
