Advanced Statistics and Data Mining Summerschool
Madrid - June 24th to July 5th, 2013
This summerschool is organized by the Artificial Intelligence Department of the Computer Science Faculty of the Univ. Politécnica de Madrid. This summerschool is currently in its 8th edition. It is an intensive course aiming at providing attendees with an introduction to the theoretical foundations as well as the practical applications of some of the modern statistical analysis techniques currently in use. The summerschool takes 2 weeks and is divided into 12 courses. Each subject has theoretical classes as well as practical classes in which each technique is put into practice with a computer program. Students may register only in those courses of their interest. A leaflet with all the school details is available here in PDF format.
Academic interest. This course complements the background of many students from a variety of disciplines with the theoretical and practical fundamentals of those modern techniques employed in the analysis and modelling of large data sets. The academic interest of this course is high since there are no specific university studies on this kind of techniques.
Scientific interest: Any scientist in most fields (engineering, life sciences, economics, etc.) is confronted to the problem of extracting conclusions from a set of experimental data. This course supplies experimentalists with the sufficient resources to be able to select the appropriate analysis technique and how to apply it to their specific problem.
Professional interest. The application of modern data analysis in the industry is well spread since it is practically needed in nearly all disciplines. As for job offers, it is a quite demanded topic: a search in Monster.com as for March 2011 retrieves more than 96,000 offers for "data analysis", and more than 25,000 offers for 'data mining', all within the USA only.
