The Mathematical Language of Data
Learn the beautiful mathematical language that underpins all modern computing including data science and artificial intelligence, as well as applied physics, engineering and economics.
This course provides an in-depth introduction to Linear Algebra - the fundamental mathematical language that underpins all data science and artificial intelligence, as well as wider computer science. Complimented by examples written using the Python NumPy library, this course explores in detail the major topics in Linear Algebra including vectors, matrices, linear equations, eigenvectors and eigenvalues, linear transformations and the application of Linear Algebra to statistics and statistical learning. This course is a fundamental pre-requisite in order to understand how data science and applied statistical learning, machine learning and deep learning models work beyond simple implementation, and enables entry-level and junior-grade data scientists to make the significant leap to becoming a senior-grade data scientist. The curriculum of this course is equivalent to the syllabus of a typical 1st year mathematics undergraduate course in Linear Algebra.
