Learning outcomes

The course aims to introduce students to the statistical models used in data science. The foundations of statistical learning (supervised and unsupervised) will be developed by placing the emphasis on the mathematical basis of the different state-of-the-art methodologies. It also aims to provide rigorous derivations of the methods currently used in industrial and scientific applications to allow students to understand their requirements for correct use. Laboratory sessions will illustrate the use of fundamental algorithms and industrial case studies in which the student will be able to learn to analyze real data-sets by means of Python software. At the end of the course the students have to demonstrate the following skills: - knowledge of the main stages of data preparation, model creation and evaluation - ability to develop solutions for feature selection - knowledge and ability to use the main regression and regularization models (e.g., LASSO, Ridge Regression) - knowledge and ability to use the main methods for dimensionality reduction (e.g., Principal Component Regression, Partial Least Squares); - knowledge and ability to use the main methods for classification (e.g., KNN, Logistic Regression, LDA) - knowledge and ability to use the main methods for tree-based regression and classification (e.g., decision tree, random forest) - knowledge and ability to use the main methods for unsupervised data analysis (e.g., K-means clustering, hierarchical clustering)

Program

-- Linear models for Regression (Linear Regression, Subset Variable Selection, Shrinkage/Regularization)
-- Classification models (Logistic Regression, Linear Discriminant Analysis)
-- Tree Based Methods (Decision Trees, Bagging, Random Forest, Boosting)
-- Unsupervised methods (Principal Component Analysis, K-Means Clustering, Hierarchical Clustering)
-- Model Assessment and selection (cross validation)
-- Introduction to Neural Networks (Single layer neural network, training a neural network)

Lab:
-- Linear regression and related variable selection/shrinkage methods (in Python)
-- Classification with logistic regression (in Python)
-- Clustering with k-means and hierarchical clustering (in Python)
-- Artificial Neural Networks (in Python)

Examination Methods

The exam consists of an oral test and the realization and presentation of one of the exercises carried out in the laboratory on data analysis using statistical learning methods.

Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative di tipologia D sono a scelta dello studente, quelle di tipologia F sono ulteriori conoscenze utili all’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro (tirocini, competenze trasversali, project works, ecc.). In base al Regolamento Didattico del Corso, alcune attività possono essere scelte e inserite autonomamente a libretto, altre devono essere approvate da apposita commissione per verificarne la coerenza con il piano di studio. Le attività formative di tipologia D o F possono essere ricoperte dalle seguenti attività.

1. Insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona

Comprendono gli insegnamenti sotto riportati e/o nel Catalogo degli insegnamenti (che può essere filtrato anche per lingua di erogazione tramite la Ricerca avanzata).

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: se l'insegnamento è compreso tra quelli sottoelencati, lo studente può inserirlo autonomamente durante il periodo in cui il piano di studi è aperto; in caso contrario, lo studente deve fare richiesta alla Segreteria, inviando a carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it il modulo nel periodo indicato.

2. Attestato o equipollenza linguistica CLA

Oltre a quelle richieste dal piano di studi, per gli immatricolati dall'A.A. 2021/2022 vengono riconosciute:

  • Lingua inglese: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza superiore a quello richiesto dal corso di studio (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).
  • Altre lingue e italiano per stranieri: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza a partire da A2 (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).

Tali cfu saranno riconosciuti, fino ad un massimo di 6 cfu complessivi, di tipologia F se il piano didattico lo consente, oppure di tipologia D. Ulteriori crediti a scelta per conoscenze linguistiche potranno essere riconosciuti solo se coerenti con il progetto formativo dello studente e se adeguatamente motivati.

Gli immatricolati fino all'A.A. 2020/2021 devono consultare le informazioni che si trovano qui.

Modalità di inserimento a librettorichiedere l’attestato o l'equipollenza al CLA e inviarlo alla Segreteria Studenti - Carriere per l’inserimento dell’esame in carriera, tramite mail: carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it

3. Competenze trasversali

Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal TALC - Teaching and learning center dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti regolarmente iscritti all'anno accademico di erogazione del corso https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: non è previsto l'inserimento dell'insegnamento nel piano di studi. Solo in seguito all'ottenimento dell'Open Badge verranno automaticamente convalidati i CFU a libretto. La registrazione dei CFU in carriera non è istantanea, ma ci saranno da attendere dei tempi tecnici.  

4. Periodo di stage/tirocinio

Oltre ai CFU previsti dal piano di studi (verificare attentamente quanto indicato sul Regolamento Didattico): qui informazioni su come attivare lo stage. 

Verificare nel regolamento quali attività possono essere di tipologia D e quali di tipologia F.

Graduation

Deadlines and administrative fulfilments

For deadlines, administrative fulfilments and notices on graduation sessions, please refer to the Graduation Sessions - Science and Engineering service.

Need to activate a thesis internship

For thesis-related internships, it is not always necessary to activate an internship through the Internship Office. For further information, please consult the dedicated document, which can be found in the 'Documents' section of the Internships and work orientation - Science e Engineering service.

Final examination regulations

Upon completion of the Degree programme, students will need to submit and present their thesis/dissertation, which must be in English and focusing on a scientific topic covered during the programme. Alternatively, the thesis/dissertation may consist of the analysis and solution of a case study (theoretical and/or relevant to a real industrial context), experimental work, possibly developed as part of an internship, or original and independent research work that may include mathematical formalisation, computer design and a business-oriented approach.

These activities will be carried out under the guidance of a Thesis Supervisor at a University facility, or even outside the University of Verona, either in Italy or abroad, provided that they are recognised and accepted for this purpose in accordance with the teaching regulations of the Master's Degree programme in Data Science.

22 CFU credits shall be awarded for the final examination (assessment of the thesis/dissertation).

The Graduation Committee, which is in charge of the evaluation of the final examination (presentation of the dissertation in English) shall evaluate each candidate, based on their achievements throughout the entire degree programme, carefully assessing the degree of consistency between educational and professional objectives, as well as their ability for independent intellectual elaboration, critical thinking, communication skills and general cultural maturity, in relation to the objectives of the Master's Degree programme in Data Science, and in particular, in relation to the topics dealt with by the candidate in their thesis.

Students may take the final exam only after they have passed all the other modules and exams that are part of their individual study plan, and fulfil all the necessary administrative requirements, in accordance with the terms indicated in the General Study Manifesto.

The graduation exam and ceremony will be carried out by the Graduation Committee appointed by the Chair of the Teaching Committee and composed of a President and at least four other members chosen among the University's lecturers.

The thesis/dissertation will be assessed by the Dissertation Committee, which is composed of three lecturers possibly including the Thesis Supervisor, and appointed by the Chair of the Teaching Committee. The Dissertation Committee shall produce an evaluation of the dissertation, which will be submitted to the Graduation Committee, which will issue the final graduation mark. The Teaching Committee shall govern the procedures of the Dissertation Committee and the Graduation Committee, and any procedures relating to the score awarded for the final exam through specific regulations issued by the Teaching Committee.
