Objectives

This programme is targeted for participants who are interested to learn how to extract and analyze data to obtain valuable information and knowledge by using the popular data mining and machine learning algorithms. While theoretical and mathematical knowledge will also be introduced, the programme will focus on real-life applications of readily available data mining and machine learning techniques and algorithms to help participants to apply the knowledge at their own context. Common data mining tools such as R and Python will be used for the students to do hands-on practices. Ethical and privacy issues will also be discussed.
