2020-01-04: Four WS-DL classes Offered for Spring 2020

"Is the pipeline literally running from your laptop?" "Don't be silly, my laptop disconnects far too often to host a service we rely on. It's running on my phone."

Four WS-DL classes are being offered for Spring 2020:
  • CS 395 Research Methods in Data and Web Science is taught by Dr. Michael L. Nelson, Wednesdays 4:20pm - 7pm.  This class will introduce undergraduates to writing proposals, reading & writing papers, giving presentations, Python, Web APIs, reproducibility, LaTeX, and GitHub.
  • CS 432/532 Web Science is taught by by Dr. Michele C. Weigle, Tues/Thurs, 11am-12:15pm.  This class explores web phenomena with a variety of data science tools such as Python, R, D3, ML, and IR.  
  • CS 480/580 Intro to Artificial Intelligence is taught by Dr. Vikas Ashok, Tues/Thur, 3-4:15pm.  The class will cover fundamental concepts, principles, and techniques in Artificial Intelligence. Topics include problem representation, problem-solving methods, search, pattern recognition, natural language processing, vision processing, machine learning, and expert systems.
  • CS 495/595 Intro to Data Mining is taught by Dr. Sampath Jayarathana,  Tues/Thurs, 5:45-7pm.  This class will introduce concepts, techniques, and tools to deal with various facets of data mining practices such as data preprocessing, pattern mining, outlier analysis, and mining of text, data streams, time series, spatial, and graph data.

In addition, Dr. Michele Weigle is offering the newly created CS 800 Research Methods, a P/F required course for PhD students. 

Dr. Jian Wu, via a course buyout, will not be teaching in Spring 2020.

If you're interested in these classes, take them in Spring 2020 since it is not guaranteed when they will be offered again.  A tentative plan for Fall 2020 is:
  • CS 418/518 Web Programming, Dr. Jian Wu
  • CS 432/532 Web Science (online only), Dr. Michele C. Weigle
  • CS 620 Intro to Data Science & Analytics, Dr. Sampath Jayarathna
  • CS 625 Data Visualization, Dr. Michele C. Weigle
  • CS 791/891 Topics on Mining Scholarly Big Data, Dr. Jian Wu
  • CS 795/895 Web Archiving Forensics, Dr. Michael L. Nelson
  • CS 795/895 Natural Language Processing, Dr. Vikas Ashok
