The course provides an introduction to advanced data analysis techniques as a basis for analyzing business data and providing input for decision support systems. The course will cover the following topics:
The course consists of a lecture together with accompanying practical exercises as well as student team projects. In the exercises the participants will gather initial expertise in applying state of the art data mining tools on realistic data sets. The team projects take place in the last third of the term. Within the projects, students realize more sophisticated data mining projects of personal choice and report about the results of their projects in the form of a written report as well as an oral presentation.
The webpage about the FSS 2020 edition of this course is found in the lecture archive.
The lectures and exercises of this course, as well as the project presentations, will be conducted online via Zoom. If possible, we will provide lecture recordings. For the moment, the exam is planned to be conducted on campus.
The exam review for the exam of FSS2020 will take place on Friday, 9 October 2020, from 11:00–12:00, building B6, 26 room A1.04. Please email Anna Primpeli beforehand so that she can bring a copy of your exam.
There is no second exam for FSS2020. The next opportunity to retake the project and exam is in HWS2020/
Note: there are three parallel exercise groups, you are supposed to attend only one.
Additional material (exercise solutions, lecture recordings) will be found in the ILIAS group of the course.
Since the autumn term 2020 starts later due to the Corona pandemic, we'll have a slightly condensed lecture period.
