### Course Description

Data Science is about explaining the past and predicting the future by means of data analysis. Data Science is a multi-disciplinary field which combines statistics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and database technology. This course provides the essential concepts and principles in data science. Students learns commonly used classification algorithms and how to use those algorithms to solve real world problems.

##### What am I going to get from this course?

Clearly define a classification problem, extract and prepare data, explore data using univariate and bivariate visualization, build classification models using eight basic and advanced algorithms, evaluate models extensively and finally learn how properly deploy their models.
