This course equips you with the theoretical knowledge and both practical and technical skills to participate in the flourishing data revolution, helping you to contribute to and benefit from the new data-driven economy. The course emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning data and skills, offering a number of interactive, online exercises that will let you try out many of the techniques and concepts covered in the taught material.  In addition the course introduces theoretical AI concepts.

The course is broken into four weeks.

Week 1: You will get “hands-on” experience of Jupyter the web-based learning environment which you will use for the course exercises and assignments.  This week also contains a Python Primer activity for those of you who are unfamiliar with the programming language or would like a refresher.


Week 2: You will learn about the fundamental terminology and processes in data science, discovering the technology landscape that has helped fuel the data explosion, and the tools that data scientists use to unlock the hidden value in these vast amounts of data. This week also contains an introduction to using Python for data science. You will begin gaining hands-on experience of data science in this week, focusing on collecting, storing and managing data.


Week 3: In this week you will understand how the data is analyzed, covering a range of techniques that any data science team will encounter from statistics and machine learning and you will use Python to analyze some given data.


Week 4:  Introducing use of search, clustering and knowledge graph processes. The case study in week four introduces in further detail the concepts of supervised and unsupervised learning to identify patterns which exist in data without classification labels. Such methods are used extensively by searching algorithms as they enable clustering of similar or closely-related results. By the end of this week you will have gained an understanding of the means by which todays search engines provide results and how the leverage structured information from knowledge bases to enhance both performance and user experience.

Course objective

This course equips you with the theoretical knowledge and both practical and technical skills to participate in the flourishing data revolution, helping you to contribute to and benefit from the new data-driven economy. The course emphasises a hands-on approach to learning data skills, offering a number of interactive, online exercises to allow you to try out many of the techniques and concepts covered in the taught material against real examples.
Course Structure
The course runs over 6 weeks and is broken down into manageable weekly topics: 
Module 1: In Module 1, we discover what data science is, along with key examples of it in action. We learn about the overlap with data journalism and open data, to look at how data science is changing the way we tell stories. We explore the spectrum of data and the importance of understanding your rights to use different types. We use the course forums to collect more great data science examples and look at the applications in your own domain.
Module 2: In Module 2, we learn about the process of data science, from gathering to visualisation, covered in the course. You also begin your hands on experience looking at the critical aspect of data management. The first assignment is based upon a real case study of hospital performance data in Tanzania and focuses on the importance of standards when collecting and organising data. This week also looks at the importance of data cleaning and the techniques to clean dirty data.
Module 3: The major case study of the course is introduced in Module 3. We begin looking at a large piece of data analysis using up to date incident records from the London Fire Brigade. In 2014, 10 fire stations were closed in London amid protests and claims that this would put lives at risk. We look at the evidence to find out what has happened as a result and if more changes need to be made. This week looks at the data processing and analysis that can help reveal the answer. Data visualisation is the focus of Module 3. Choosing the right visualisation to communicate your findings to everyone is of critical importance. This week introduces many of the different types of visualisations available and looks at the use of aspects like colour to represent different dimensions in data. You are challenged to spot when you are being deceived, and to select the most appropriate visualisations.
Module 4:  In a very short period, AI has evolved into an essential part of our daily lives (e.g. personal assistants, news and content recommendation). Nowadays, AI is able to defeat professional gamers in chess, Go and video games. The potential benefits from AI can be tremendous. Topics introduced in this week include how the impact of user expectations and advances in computing technology contributed to a history of AI ‘winters’ and ‘summers’, the core technologies associated with AI and the types of data these technologies use. The contributions of ‘big data’, ‘cloud computing’ and the ‘Internet of Things’ are discussed along with possible legal, moral and ethical implications which may have arisen. The AI present and future are also considered at the end of this week.

After successfully completing the course, you’ll be able to: 

Explain the key concepts in data science and its real-world application.
Classify the different types of data available along with rights for usage.
Implement an effective data collection and management strategy.
Prepare data ready for analysis
Create a number of data visualisations.
Start working with live data.
Critically evaluate the challenges and opportunities of exploiting data science in your organisation.
Demonstrate high level understanding what AI is and the role it can play to deliver benefits for your organisation.
Identify potential applications of AI in practice.
Understand the main capabilities of AI and the core technologies that help deliver them
