Data Science

Graphs: Analysis and Visualization Course


Participants in this program will engage in a variety of interactive exercises to get hands-on experience in the process of transforming graph-based data into insight for making better decisions.

Course Description

Analysis and VisualizationAs the availability of data and computer processing power explodes, it is becoming even more important to study and analyze data that can be transformed into visual graphs.

Data visuals present the analyzed data in ways that are accessible to and engage different stakeholders.

Participants in this course will engage in a variety of interactive exercises to get hands-on experience in the process of transforming graph-based data into insight for making better decisions.

Key Takeaways

Course attendees will gain an understanding of the challenges and best practices related to graphs, their analysis, and visualization of data. You’ll also be able to interpret data into actionable insights in your organization.

  • Demonstrate the mathematical concepts and programming tools necessary to explain core graph theory, practical and application driven topics.

  • Apply course concepts and skills to create, interact with, visualize, and analyze graphs.

  • Discuss random and real-world graphs, and common local and global analysis techniques for operating on graphs.

  • Explain how graphs can be used to leverage relationships (e.g., correlations, clustering) in real data.

  • Discuss the basics of more advanced topics such as scaling, ethics, and dynamic graphs.

  • Demonstrate the course techniques on one or more real-world applications in neuroscience, medicine, or a domain of your choice.

Prerequisites

A working knowledge of calculus, statistics, computer science, software design, and systems engineering practices with some exposure to data science and data structures.
