Data-driven artificial intelligence


About this course

Modern businesses need to make sense of vast amounts of (structured or unstructured) data in order to support business decisions, and remain competitive. Data-driven AI techniques address this purpose. It comprises the strategies and technologies used by organizations for the data analysis of business information. It provides insight into the business activities to support decision making.
This course provides an introduction to the major aspects of data-driven AI. It introduces the fundamental concepts, and covers the main methods and techniques to enable applications in real-world business context. It starts with the data provisioning process, ranging from data collection and preparation to modelling, evaluation and deployment, and continues with the approaches for data visualization. Next, analytical techniques for supervised learning (prediction and classification) and unsupervised learning (clustering) are introduced. Topics of more recent relevance such as deep learning and text mining are also discussed. Furthermore, the concept of explainable AI is introduced and some related techniques are discussed.
