Data Science without a Ph.D. Using IBM SPSS Modeler (v18.1.1) SPVC
Contains PDF course guide, as well as a lab environment where students can work through demonstrations and exercises at their own pace.
This course focuses on reviewing concepts of data science, where participants will learn the stages of a data science project. Topics include using automated tools to prepare data for analysis, build models, evaluate models, and deploy models. To learn about these data science concepts and topics, participants will use IBM SPSS Modeler as a tool.
