Commerce and research are being transformed by data-driven discovery and
prediction. Skills required for data analytics at massive levels – scalable
data management on and off the cloud, parallel algorithms, statistical
modeling, and proficiency with a complex ecosystem of tools and platforms –
span a variety of disciplines and are not easy to obtain through
conventional curricula. Tour the basic techniques of data science,
including both SQL and NoSQL solutions for massive data management (e.g.,
MapReduce and contemporaries), algorithms for data mining (e.g., clustering
and association rule mining), and basic statistical modeling (e.g., linear
and non-linear regression).
