This course builds on the previous Basic Methods course and covers more advanced concepts including classification and clustering algorithms, decision trees, linear and logistic regression, time series analysis, and text analytics. The course will provide applied knowledge on how to analyze large scale network data produced through social media. In this context topics include network community detection, techniques for link analysis, information propagation on the web and information analysis of social media.

The course meets once a week on campus for an in-class session. These weekly in-class sessions on campus are held in a computer lab and run from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Students have facilitated in-class computer lab time and open computer lab hours on Ryerson campus.

This program offers a good introduction to statistics, data science, data management, working with large data sets, analytics theory and big data tools. As someone who hasn't coded for 10+ years, I was able to pick it up pretty quickly and complete all of the coding via what was taught in the class or tutorials/lab sessions. The program has exposed us to most of the standard tools: SQL, RegEx, R, Watson, Hive, Pig, Spark, Hadoop, etc.. Also, you get exposure to analytics methodologies (clustering, regression, decision trees, machine learning). The program has been a mix of theory and more practical learning - which helps ensure you really understand the purpose of the tool or method and how to apply it to real-world or business problems. The program has been a great way for me to build up my knowledge and expertise in big data and machine analytics. I am not a full-time technologist, but work with many, and we now have a common language and tool set to problem solve with together. This course would also be a great complementary skill set for someone who is already a technologist or already a data analyst who could then take what they learned and build more depth on it through their professional activities.
