Introduction to Big Data and Machine Learning for Survey Researchers and Social Scientists

 
Part of Data Matters: Data Science Short Course Series

Data science, machine learning and big data are all the rage in many areas where decisions are required or insights need to be made. In this course we explore how big data concepts, processes and methods can be used within the context of social science and survey research. We also provide a technical overview of common machine learning algorithms coupled with examples that are specifically motivated by social science and survey research applications.
