HON 385 - Is Big Data Enough? A Conceptual Exploration of Data Science


Prerequisite, acceptance to the University Honors Program. In this course we will explore the computational, mathematical and philosophical concepts underpinning the use of large collections of data to solve problems. We will ask whether it is possible to preserve a role for our reason, when so much of what we understand and what we decide is ultimately shaped by data-driven algorithms. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
