SML 310: Research Projects in Data Science


A project-based seminar course in which students work individually or in small teams to tackle data science and machine learning problems, working with real-world datasets. The course emphasizes critical thinking about experiments and large dataset analysis and the ability to clearly communicate one's research. This course is intended to support students in developing the analytical skills necessary for quantitative independent work.  Students are not required to bring in their own project proposal and dataset for this course; however, if they do, students should consult with their home department about how this course could appropriately complement, but not replace, their independent work requirements.
