BIT 278 - Data Analytics II


This course provides an overview of data mining and predictive analytics, including large scale, enterprise level analytics.  The course structure follows the stages of a typical data mining project, from reading data, to data exploration, data transformation, modeling, and effective interpretation of results.  This course demonstrates how to develop models to predict categorical and continuous outcomes, using such techniques as neural networks and decision trees.  Students will have the opportunity to apply techniques learned to other fields of study through individualized projects in social, political, scientific, engineering or health information analytics.
