Advanced Data Science and Data Analytics


The last years we experience a significant growth in applications and technologies that relate to knowledge modeling, knowledge management and machine learning. Such technologies include processing of Big Data, and efficient algorithms for Big Data analytics applied to a number of sectors such as sustainable resource management, smart cities, finance, health care, retail, banking etc. The course aims to provide the fundamental principles as well as current challenges in the areas of modeling, storing, processing and learning from Big Data corpora. More specifically, the main topics and themes of the proposed course focus in the areas of Knowledge and Data Modeling, Knowledge Management, Reasoning and Machine Learning, and Software Architectures for Big Data Processing.
