Students experience today's data deluge by exploring its numerous sources, investigating the stories it tells, and examining its implications in God's world by applying concepts of artificial intelligence (e.g. machine learning), high performance computing, visualization and decision making methodologies. Students employ curiosity, intuition and innovation by working with software resources to extract valuable information from the glut of data facing many of the disciplines. Students will use existing large data sets and employ software tools to discover patterns through visualization and quantification. Students incorporate these experiences into a semester project. Students also investigate the ethical considerations of data availability and analysis along with career options in the field of data science. Laboratory.
