Computational Data-Driven Modeling (CDM) I is the first in a sequence of two courses designed to introduce the student to basics skills in exploratory data analysis and data-driven computational modeling using foundational concepts drawn from linear algebra, probability, statistics, random processes, time-series analysis and dynamical systems. In CDM-1 students will learn to apply regression and classification algorithms on multivariate data and assess performance of these models. An interactive project-driven approach is taken using the Python programming platform and its associated open-source libraries for statistical modeling, data analysis and machine-learning. A review of the tools and techniques from probability and statistics will be undertaken.
