About this item

Computer scientists and statisticians describe some modern approaches to analyzing and understanding the structure of datasets where their size outpaces the computing resources needed to analyze them using traditional approaches. They cover general perspectives on big data, data-centric exploratory methods, efficient algorithms, graph approaches, model fitting and regularization, ensemble methods, causal inference, and targeted learning. Among specific topics are the advent of data science: some considerations on the unreasonable effectiveness of data, high-dimensional computational geometry, learning structured distributions, tutorial for causal inference, and the online estimation of the average treatment effect.
