Data Analytics & Machine Learning


This module will review the application of statistics and experimental design to applications in industry. Learners will be guided through the fundamentals of the R programming language and use analytical methods to identify, analyse and solve industry related problems.

The aim of the module is to enable the learner to program statistical, and in particular, machine learning applications, based on manufacturing data sets, using standard mathematical tools.

Content includes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1. Analyse the application of computational intelligence to decision-making problems in a relevant industrial context.

2. Design an experiment to generate suitable datasets and apply statistical inference to extract valuable information.

3. Program a statistical software tool to perform time series analysis and forecasting.

4. Investigate approaches to machine learning, select, and develop appropriate algorithms for a specific data stream.

5. Implement a data analytics application for decision support on an empirical data stream situated in a manufacturing context, relevant to the learner’s industrial practice.
