Data science is rapidly developing into a major component of businesses and organisations in the 21st century. Part of this rapid development is an increasing number of advanced data science technologies and systems. This unit provides a hands-on learning experience of selected, up-to-date data science tools for students who are seeking to work at the advanced technological level. Topics include but are not limited to the intersection of data science and cloud computing such as Amazon Web Services and IBM Watson Studio, Apache Hadoop and similar ecosystems, Google Cloud Compute, TensorFlow architectures, working with GPU systems and data warehouses, advanced machine learning / artificial intelligence tools such as PyTorch and others. This unit is aimed at an advanced level and will be taught using real-world scenarios.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate advanced knowledge and skills in data science technologies and systems and their ethical use;
2. Comfortably work with cloud storage and computing tools;
3. Critically reflect on new developments of data science technologies and systems; and
4. Show a sound understanding and practical skills in working with advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to analyse, model and predict complex data problems.
Four hours of problem-based learning activities, interactive workshops and practical work in laboratory classes on campus per week.
