Data mining, the art and science of learning from data, covers a number of different procedures. In this online course, you will cover key unsupervised learning techniques: association rules, principal components analysis, and clustering. Predictive Analytics 3 will include an integration of supervised and unsupervised learning techniques.
This is a hands-on course — participants in the course will have access to an Excel-based comprehensive tool for data-mining, XLMiner, the use of which will be explained in the course. Participants will apply data mining algorithms to real data, and will interpret the results.
A final project will integrate an unsupervised task with supervised methods covered in predictive Analytics 1 and 2
