Data Mining (Undergraduate/Postgraduate)
Data that has relevance for decision-making is accumulating at an incredible rate due to a host of technological advances. Electronic data capture has become inexpensive and ubiquitous as a by-product of innovations such as the Internet, e-commerce, electronic banking, point-of-sale devices, bar-code readers, and electronic patient records. Data mining is a rapidly growing field that is concerned with developing techniques to assist decision-makers to make intelligent use of these repositories. The field of data mining has evolved from the disciplines of statistics and artificial intelligence. This module will combine practical exploration of data mining techniques with a exploration of algorithms, including their limitations. Students taking this module should have an elementary understanding of probability concepts and some experience of programming.
Signals and Systems (BUPT joint programme)
Signals and Systems is an introduction to Signal Theory, a discipline that forms an integral part of many engineering systems, including Internet of Things systems. The concepts of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems will be introduced, both in the time and in the frequency domains. Fourier approaches will be presented to connect the time and frequency domains and sampling theory will be presented to connect continuous-time to discrete-time signals and systems. Analytical and computational tools will be discussed throughout the module.
