Intro to Analytic Thinking, Data Science, and Data Mining

University of California, Irvine via Coursera

Overview

Welcome to Introduction to Analytic Thinking, Data Science, and Data Mining. In this course, we will begin with an exploration of the field and profession of data science with a focus on the skills and ethical considerations required when working with data. We will review the types of business problems data science can solve and discuss the application of the CRISP-DM process to data mining efforts. A brief overview of Descriptive, Predictive, and Prescriptive Analytics will be provided, and we will conclude the course with an exploratory activity to learn more about the tools and resources you might find in a data science toolkit.

    This world works with mining in order to provide other effects mining no mining no world development.

    For sure, mining plays a big role in the entire world in order to conquer its spheres. By doing this course, I will be able to analyse and provide data science as well as to come across with data mining issues.

    Furthermore, global warming as a part ot this course will also increase the really impact of mining theories that will allow me to focus on this course.
