About this Unit
Analysis of data is essential for scientific investigation, modelling processes and predicting future events. Data Science is the investigation of the tools required that allow us to perform this modelling and prediction. The increase in accessible data over the past few decades has promoted the use of Data Science, making it a desired skill in many professions. In this unit we further investigate the methods of regression, clustering and classification that form the basis of a data scientist’s toolbox.
