"What you need to know about big data and what big data needs to know about you"- Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)

Date: 2016-10-31

Data is everywhere and can be obtained from many different sources. Digital data can be obtained from social media, images, audio recordings and sensors, and electronic data is quite often available as real-time data streams. Many of these datasets have the potential to provide solutions to important problems, and advice in making decisions in health, science, sociology, engineering, business, information ...
