Free Online Course: Big Data - from Data to Decisions


Course starts 8 May 2017



Many datasets can provide solutions to important problems and inform decisions. However, the size, complexity, quality and diversity of these datasets make them difficult to process and analyse. Join us and we’ll share new technological or methodological solutions you can use to meet the demand for analytics in your field.

We will introduce big data and some of the statistical and mathematical approaches for analysing it. Then we explore the power of big data and the process of getting from data to decisions before you use some of the tools available for storing and managing large datasets.

This course is part of the Big Data Analytics program with FutureLearn, which will enable you to gain the big data analytics skills that are in demand today.
