Design of AI-driven business operation


About this course

During the course, the students will analyze and redesign a business operation, based on data from practice. The students will learn about methods that are available to guide the redesign of an operation in a stepwise manner. Subsequently, each week they will study techniques that can be applied in the various steps and apply these techniques to the dataset. Students will be assisted in performing these tasks in an introductory lecture, working sessions, and through office hours that are kept by the lecturers.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course:

  • the student can apply a suitable data-driven design methodology (e.g., CRISP-DM) to address a particular design problem;

  • the student can refine methods and techniques from scientific papers to solve parts of a design problem;
