STAT GU4702 Exploratory Data Analysis and Visualization. 3 points.
Prerequisites: A course in computer programming.
This course covers visual approaches to exploratory data analysis, with a focus on graphical techniques for finding patterns in high dimensional datasets. We consider data from a variety of fields, which may be continuous, categorical, hierarchical, temporal, and/or spatial in nature. We cover visual approaches to selecting, interpreting, and evaluating models/algorithms such as linear regression, time series analysis, clustering, and classification.
