DavidsonX school conducting an online course on Applications of Linear Algebra Part 2. The course explores applications of linear algebra in the field of data mining by learning fundamentals of search engines, clustering movies into genres and of computer graphics by posterising an image.
About the course
Our world is in a data deluge with ever increasing sizes of datasets. Linear algebra is a tool to manage and analyze such data.
This course is part 2 course. This part extends smoothly from the first. In this part of the course, we'll develop the linear algebra more fully than part 1.
This class has a focus on data mining with some applications of computer graphics. The course discuss in depth than part 1 course.The tools that we learn can be applied to applications of your interest. For instance, clustering data to find similar movies can be applied to find similar songs or friends. So, come to this course ready to investigate your own ideas.
