Intro to Graph Data Structures

Tuesday, April 23th from 7 pm - 8:30 pm
Ravi Iyer, Principal Data Scientist, Ranker.com


This class will teach you techniques for mining insight from graphs of data, which can help you understand your customers and users.  Given the volume of data collected online, graphs of data concerning social connections, business relationships, interests and opinions are increasingly popular with organizations. Students will gain an understanding of how graphs of data sets are created and learn about the different types of graphs used. The instructor will focus on teaching you how graph data can be used to understand the values of consumers, users, or employees. The instructor will do this by going over several case studies to illustrate visualization and cluster analysis techniques.

Student Takeaways:

  • What is a graph?
  • Why are graphs useful?
  • What does a graph represent?
  • How can I visualize graphs of data?
  • What are the limitations/benefits of graph data?
  • Cluster analysis vs. Factor Analysis
  • Insight from graphs on a macro-level


Prerequisites:
None.
