Data analytics is an exciting new field combining databases, artificial intelligence, machine learning and visualisation, among others. It is applied in many fields of business, industry and science to discover new information and knowledge. Central to data analytics are the algorithms themselves. This subject builds on previous data analytics subjects to give an understanding of how basic as well as more powerful and subtle algorithms work. It takes a research-inspired approach so that students learn to apply state-of-the-art algorithms to their professional practice. It also introduces data analytics approaches for specific domains such as social network analysis and text mining.
