“In the information age data of unprecedented sizes and complexities bring challenges and opportunities to almost all sectors in our society. Companies, governments and academia increasingly rely on data-driven decision-making, expanding the demand for data analytics expertise.
In this lecture, we illustrate the usefulness and the power of data analytics by some successful applications.” – James Abdey
