Data analytics primarily refers to a range of applications from basic business intelligence, reporting and online analytical processing to various forms of advanced analytics. Machine learning is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building. It is a branch of artificial intelligence that investigates how computers can learn from data to recognize complex patterns and make intelligent decisions with minimal human intervention. Machine learning is a fast-growing discipline and in recent years, it has gained a lot of importance and wide acceptance. This course is intended to introduce the algorithmic approaches in data analytics and machine learning, and to discuss the recent research directions in these areas.
