Course: BANA 410. Machine Learning for Business (3)
Prerequisite: SOM 307 (Business Analytics majors must attain a grade of “C” or higher). BUS 302 and BUS 302L are prerequisites for Business majors. This course covers machine learning approaches to discover patterns hidden in large datasets. What can we predict about the future, given the data from the past? What kind of models can we construct with this information, and how can we assess these models’ behavior and reliability? Finally, how can we represent the data and devise tools for discovering these models efficiently and effectively? This course focuses on tools for data analytics. Furthermore, it covers the mathematical formulations underlying statistical processing, and the development and analysis of learning algorithms.
