Data sets in Psychology are becoming so large and so complex thanks to technologies like mobile devices, remote sensing, software logs, cameras, RFID readers and other tools, that traditional data processing and analytical tools are inadequate to extract meaning from them. Big Data is the predictive analytics and advanced data analytics methods that extract more value from data.
This course explores the computational analysis of extremely large data sets to extract patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human cognition and behaviour.
