T005x Course Info. I ranked every Intro to Data Science course on the internet, based on thousands of data points. A year ago, I dropped out of one of the best computer science programs in Canada.

I ranked every Intro to Data Science course on the internet, based on thousands of data points

I started creating my own data science master’s program using online resources. I realized that I could learn everything I needed through edX, Coursera, and Udacity instead. And I could learn it faster, more efficiently, and for a fraction of the cost. I’m almost finished now. Calling Bullshit. Teaching — Enrico Bertini. I have taught Information Visualization at NYU Tandon every year since 2012.

CSE 591 - Visual Analytics

People use visual analytics tools and techniques to synthesize information and derive insight from massive, dynamic, ambiguous, and often conflicting data, provide timely, defensible, and understandable assesments; and communicate assesment effectively for action. The overall goal is to detect the expected and discover the unexpected. Visual analytics is a multidisciplinary field that includes the following focus areas: Working knowledge of C/C++ In the final project you may choose among several topics related to the course content.

Here we use programmable commodity graphics hardware boards (GPUs) to accelerate a wide variety of 3D computer tomographic (CT) reconstruction algorithms. So far we have achieved speed-ups of 1-2 orders of magnitude, without significant loss in reconstruction quality. Evergreen Data Academy. Wannabe Data Scientist!

Big Data for Smart Cities

In the smart city, the innovative use of data helps provide better and more inventive services to improve people’s lives and make the entire city run more smoothly. But the data our cities collect nowadays is more massive and varied, and is accessed at higher speeds than ever before. This is Big Data. New technologies are constantly being developed to better manage Big Data. This computer science course, from the IEEE Smart Cities initiative and the University of Trento, helps students understand and use these new technologies to help improve a city. Learn Data Analysis - Free Curriculum. Introduction The Data Analysis learning path provides a short but intensive introduction to the field of data analysis. The path is divided into three parts. In part 1, we learn general programming practices (software design, version control) and tools (python, sql, unix, and Git).

About to teach Statistical Graphics and Visualization course at CMU. I’m pretty excited for tomorrow: I’ll begin teaching the Fall 2015 offering of 36-721, Statistical Graphics and Visualization. This is a half-semester course designed primarily for students in our MSP program (Masters in Statistical Practice). A large part of the focus will be on useful principles and frameworks: human visual perception, the Grammar of Graphics, graphic design and interaction design, and more current dataviz research.

As for tools, besides base R and ggplot2, I’ll introduce a bit of Tableau, D3.js, and Inkscape/Illustrator. For assessments, I’m trying a variant of “specs grading”, with a heavy use of rubrics, hoping to make my expectations clear and my TA’s grading easier. Classifier diagnostics from Cook & Swayne’s book My initial course materials are up on my department webpage. Statistical Graphics and Visualization course materials. I’ve just finished teaching the Fall 2015 session of 36-721, Statistical Graphics and Visualization.

Again, it is a half-semester course designed primarily for students in the MSP program (Masters of Statistical Practice) in the CMU statistics department. I’m pleased that we also had a large number of students from other departments taking this as an elective. For software we used mostly R (base graphics, ggplot2, and Shiny). But we also spent some time on Tableau, Inkscape, D3, and GGobi. We covered a LOT of ground. Tapestry 2016 materials: LOs and Rubrics for teaching Statistical Graphics and Visualization. Here are the poster and handout I’ll be presenting tomorrow at the 2016 Tapestry Conference. My poster covers the Learning Objectives that I used to design my dataviz course last fall, along with the grading approach and rubric categories that I used for assessment. The Learning Objectives were a bit unusual for a Statistics department course, emphasizing some topics we teach too rarely (like graphic design).

The “specs grading” approach seemed to be a success, both for student motivation and for the quality of their final projects. The handout is a two-sided single page summary of my detailed rubrics for each assignment.
