Abstract: In this guest lecture, I will give an introduction to data science. We will discuss examples of data science applications (e.g., the missing bullet holes on the missing airplanes in World War II and special education) and the overall data science process. After that, we will go over various data wrangling tasks (e.g., aggregating and transforming data) and process real data about COVID-19 cases in US colleges using Pandas library in Jupyter notebook. Finally, we will discuss the key ideas of dimensionality reduction using Principal Component Analysis (PCA).
