Big Data and Data Science gain increasing attention and significance, as they are discovered by scientific and economic domains. Today Data Science and Big Data advance into various facets of our daily life. The purpose of this practical course is to make the students familiar with the practical approach of Big Data applications and Data Science. By learning the handling with state-of-the-art Big Data tools the core concepts of the Big Data process are conveyed.

In particular, the students will work on Deep Learning approaches in various different data domains, including image, text, point clouds and graphs. Besides the aspects of data-driven analysis, this course aims to foster the practice of agile project management methods and the application of software engineering techniques. Furthermore, this course targets the responsible and efficient handling of limited resources.

The practical course is introduced with a kick-off meeting at the start of the semester.

The lab course is funded by the ZD.B Innovationslabor Big Data Science.
