Description The course is an introduction to data science, intended for a general audience. The goal of the course is to understand how we can effectively use data and scientific reasoning when solving real-world, everyday problems. The course will provide an overview of the history of data science, the connection to machine learning and artificial intelligence. It will introduce fundamental data concepts, data engineering, big data principles, data visualization, and the role of ethics in data science practice. We will also focus on several special topics that illustrate the way humans interact with the world through data, such as natural language processing, computer vision, and human-computer interaction.
At the end of the course, students will be able to: •Understand the basics behind modern data science •Understand the history of data science, and its development from computer science, and statistics into its own separate field •Understand the connections of data science to AI and machine learning •Understand basic principles related to data, big data, human-computer interaction, And data visualization •Understand the role of ethics and privacy issues in the practice of modern data science  
None: the course is intended for a general audience; prior programming experience or statistical knowledge is not required.
