Shaping a secure and sustainable energy future for all.
Formal courses given infrequently to explore, in depth, a comparatively narrow subject that may be topical or of special interest. Introductory course in computer-based scripting languages for use in data analyses. This practical course teaches fast manipulation of datasets on the Unix command line, scripting in spreadsheets, and fundamental control structures and data manipulation in a modern interpreted programming language. It is expected that students gain an overview of the available tools and techniques that allows them to acquire basic proficiency in select techniques in the course of applications in most other courses in Data Sciences.
The course introduces students to data sciences, an emerging discipline focused on the knowledge and skills needed to harness the power of data to advance science and engineering, address complex national and global challenges, inform public policy, and improve human lives. It demonstrates how the discipline of data science integrates knowledge and skills in computer sciences, statistics, and informatics with exposure to application domains such as life science, health science, cyber security, astronomy, etc.
Through a combination of lectures, hands-on labs, and case studies, students are introduced to the "big picture" of data sciences including elements of understanding data through exploratory data analysis, testing hypotheses against data, building predictive models, all using real-world examples.
The course also introduces students to opportunities to specialize in Applied Data Sciences with an emphasis on data sciences applications in the real world , Computational Data Sciences with an emphasis on well-engineered data analytics systems , and Statistical Data Sciences with an emphasis on advanced statistical theory and methods.
The course introduces students to the fundamentals of data models: organizing, managing, and using different types of data that arise in real-world applications. The course introduces students to several alternative data models and database solutions, emphasizing their strengths and limitations in the context of real-world applications.
Topics covered include the relational databases, key-value stores, column-oriented databases, vector-space databases, graph databases, and distributed file systems together with their applications in solving real-world big data management problems.
Upon completion of the course, the students will be able to choose an appropriate data model and database solution for a given application, and use the chosen database to organize, manage, and use data in the context of specific applications. Supervised student activities on research projects identified on an individual or small-group basis. Creative projects, including research and design, that are supervised on an individual basis and that fall outside the scope of formal courses.
The course provides students with the knowledge and skills to analyze and implement protection strategies for data privacy and security.
The course teaches students the principles of machine learning and data mining and their applications in the data sciences. Topics to be covered include: principled approaches to clustering, classification, and function approximation from data, feature selection and dimensionality reduction, assessing the performance of alternative models, and relative strengths and weaknesses of alternative approaches.
The course will include a laboratory component to provide students with hands-on experience with applications of the algorithms to problems from several domains. Prerequisites for the course include basic proficiency in programming, elementary probability theory and statistics, and discrete mathematics. This course introduces students to the principles and the practice of data integration, with particular emphasis on relational, knowledge-based, graph-based, and probabilistic methods.
Carefully crafted assignments will help enhance the students' mastery of both the theoretical underpinnings as well as practical aspects of data integration.
The students will work in teams to solve representative data integration problems drawn from real-world applications. Upon completion of the course, students should be able design, implement, and evaluate data integration solutions to support data intensive applications.
The course introduces visual analytics methods and techniques that are designed to support human analytical reasoning with data. People use visual analytics tools and techniques to synthesize information and derive insight from massive, dynamic, ambiguous, and often conflicting data, and to communicate their findings effectively for decision-making.
This course will serve as an introduction to the science and technology of visual analytics and will include lectures on both theoretical foundations and application methodologies. The goals of this course are for students to 1 develop a comprehensive understanding of this emerging, multidisciplinary field, and 2 apply that understanding toward a focused research problem in a real-world application or a domain of personal interest.
This course builds up the students' understanding of data sciences by discussing the fundamental principles in the context of real-world examples, and then shows specifically how the principles can provide understanding of many of the most common methods and techniques covered in previous data science courses. The course features three individual projects as well as a team project spanning the entire course.
After taking this course, the students should be able to cover the entire pipeline of a data science project, from problem formulation to data science solutions. That is, start from a data driven problem, identify pertinent datasets to the problem and collect data, reason about the best techniques that should be used to solve the problem, implement algorithms and models, assess performance, and communicate actionable insights through both written reports and oral presentations.
As one example, a fundamental principle of data science is that solutions for extracting useful knowledge from data must carefully consider the problem in the real world scenarios. This may sound obvious at first, but the notion underlies many choices that must be made in the process of data analytics, including problem formulation, method choice, solution evaluation, and general strategy formulation.
Another fundamental principle is that predictive modeling can both inform and be informed by relevant knowledge including theories, models, frameworks of the relevant domains. In this course, this principle will be highlighted by case studies from multiple domains so that students can be inspired to apply this principle to their term projects.
Lastly, as most data science projects are delivered as solutions as opposed to software deliverables, the ability for data scientists to communicate their results through concise and actionable insights plays a critical role in a data science project. This course places a particular focus on developing student writing abilities, through formal project reports and presentations.
The individual projects will offer an interactive experience for students through feedbacks on their reports provided by the instructor. The term-long project will also train students in writing in a collaborative environment.
This course exposes and trains students in the analysis of emerging trends in data sciences. Staying abreast of new developments can be a daunting task but is critical for success.
This course provides an in-depth analysis of a particular innovation, but starts with developing generally applicable skills for analyzing new technologies. In particular, the analytic framework considers the innovation's technical aspects and potential for widespread adoption, but also its social, organizational and policy implications. As a course focused on a new data sciences technology or analytic innovation, it is repeatable.
As such, the course enables students to be exposed to the cutting edge of data sciences, supporting a forward looking view of the field for students across the university.
The learning objectives of the course are that the students are able to choose appropriate programming models for a big data application, understand the tradeoff of such choice, and be able to leverage state-of-the art cyber infrastructures to develop scalable data analytics or discovery tasks. The realization of these algorithms will enable the students to develop data analytic models for massive datasets. This course explores social and ethical dimensions of data science. Datafication can be a powerful force for good, but it can also do harm-to individuals and society.
Oriented primarily around case studies, the course investigates when, why, and how data is collected, analyzed, and used, and explores the ethical stakes of data-driven systems. In addition to diagnosing ethical problems-e. The course will be comprised of both "theory" and "lab" components. The former will contextualize ethical problems, introducing students to ethical theories and frameworks for addressing them.
The latter will ask students to put those ideas to work, using the tools of data science to identify examples of ethical issues in data science practice, and proposing means of addressing them. This course provides a data sciences problem-solving experience, addressing realistic data science dilemmas for which solutions require teamwork and collaboration.
This course provides an overview of the foundations, problems, approaches, implementation, and applications of, artificial intelligence. Topics covered include problem solving, goal-based and adversarial search, logical, probabilistic, and decision theoretic knowledge representation and inference, decision making, and learning.
Through programming assignments that sample these topics, students acquire an understanding of what it means to build rational agents of different sorts as well as applications of AI techniques in language processing, planning, vision.

ENERGY AND ANALYTICS: BIG DATA AND BUILDING TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION (English Edition)
A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic methods and sensors to collect data. Insights gained from that data are used to manage assets, resources and services efficiently; in return, that data is used to improve the operations across the city. This includes data collected from citizens, devices, buildings and assets that is then processed and analyzed to monitor and manage traffic and transportation systems, power plants , utilities, water supply networks, waste , crime detection ,  information systems , schools, libraries, hospitals, and other community services. The smart city concept integrates information and communication technology ICT , and various physical devices connected to the IoT network to optimize the efficiency of city operations and services and connect to citizens. ICT is used to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to increase contact between citizens and government. Due to the breadth of technologies that have been implemented under the smart city label, it is difficult to distill a precise definition of a smart city. Deakin and Al Waer  list four factors that contribute to the definition of a smart city:.

Artificial intelligence seems to be on the brink of a boom. Yet companies are struggling to scale up their AI efforts. Most have run only ad hoc projects or applied AI in just a single business process.
Smart buildings are among the main areas of applications for the Internet of Things IoT and the technologies that unlock its value for years to come. Yet, the smart building can take many forms and shapes and smart buildings are not just about technologies, let alone about the IoT. Moreover, as opposed to what one might imagine in these days where smart often refers to a mix of IoT, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, a bit of autonomous decisions in buildings, edge computing and so forth, the smart building is one of the few exceptions and exists since long before IoT and modern-day IT. Obviously de facto IoT and several IT technologies are essential in smart buildings these days, yet the term smart building, its definition, its many aspects, smart building technologies and standards etc. Both terms intelligent building and smart building in other words exist since certainly three decades but of course evolved over time.
