If you are interested in Advanced Data Analysis optional course (6 credits, 36 hours, first semester)
If you are lazy, do not read below and just watch this video here
Starting from this academic year this course has become a free choice course for students of the Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation as well as for the studentes of the Master in Accounting and Finance. Therefore, to better accommodate your needs, I will adjust the timetable depending on the students who plan to attend. So, if you choose this course and plan to attend it, either come at the first lesson or drop me an email.
The course in brief
This course gives you the skills to organize and analyse data in a rigorous and scientific way. This is a kind of skill which you might have seen in other courses, but probably either too theoretically or as part of other scopes. In this course you will learn the vital skill of taking raw data and extract useful information from them. All the course is hands-on, i.e. we will focus on examples, exercises and assignments rather than on theory. At the end of the course you will be able to gather unstructured data, put them into a usable format, analyse them finding relations and interesting features and present your results.
If you plan to study regularly during the course, you can skip 94% of the exam study load. For the first part you are evaluated on a group assignment without the need for mandatory attendance, while for the second part you are evaluated on regular courseworks and oral presentations of your home activities (mandatory attendance either in person or via Skype is required).
If you cannot study regularly during this course, videos of all my lessons are provided on YouTube. However, take into consideration to do the assignment for first part anyway, since it does not require attendance and you can skip 46% of the exam study load.
I started my research activity on computational fluid dynamics, specifically partial differential equations of turbulence models in hydraulics. Then I switched to computational linguistics, working on language models for automatic speech recognition and on natural language understanding. Finally, I started teaching computer science and data analysis at the Faculty of Economics, carrying on research on computational finance, focusing in particular on data collection and network representations of Italian public companies. I am also involved in projects related to mass customization and cryptocurrencies' technology.
Ho iniziato la mia attività di ricerca in fluidodinamica computazionale, specificatamente sulle equazioni differenziali alle derivate parziali dei modelli di turbolenza in idraulica. Dopodiché sono passato alla linguistica computazionale, lavorando sui modelli del linguaggio per il riconoscimento automatico del parlato e sulla comprensione di linguaggio naturale. Infine, ho iniziato a insegnare informatica e analisi dei dati alla Facoltà di Economia, intraprendendo ricerca in finanza computazione, focalizzata in particolare sulla raccolta dati e rappresentazioni di rete delle aziende italiane quotate. Sono anche impegnato in progetti legati alla mass customization e alla tecnologia delle criptovalute.
Meine Forschungsaktivität hat ihren Ursprung in der numerischer Fluiddynamik, mit Schwerpunkt auf partielle Differentialgleichungen von Turbulenzmodellen in der Hydraulik. Anschließend setzte ich mich mit Computerlinguistik auseinander und arbeitete an Sprachmodellen zur automatischen Spracherkennung und zum Verstehen natürlicher Sprache. Schließlich begann meine Lehrtätigkeit an der Fakultät für Wirtschaftswissenschaften, wo ich Informatik und Datenanalyse unterrichte und mich Forschungsprojekten auf dem Gebiet der Computational Finance widme. Dabei konzentrierte ich mich insbesondere auf die Datenerfassung und Darstellung bestehender Netzwerke von börsennotierten italienischen Unternehmen. Ich bin auch an Projekten im Bereich Mass Customization und Kryptowährungen beteiligt.
