Data Mining and Exploration (DME)
Response to 2016/17 survey feedback for DME.
- I agree that the treatment of PCA was too detailed.
- Important components of the course are the computer labs and a real-world data analysis project where practical skills can be trained. The goal of the lectures was to ensure a good understanding of the methods used in the labs and project.
- The project was assigned six weeks before the hand-in date, which should be sufficient to complete it despite assignments from other courses.
