Computation is an essential tool for many facets of information science research. Examples of its utility include capture, access and analysis of digital data; visualization of data for analysis, interpretation and information extraction; construction of user focused applications; and analysis of textual and sensor-derived information to detect patterns and dynamics of human activities, social interactions and social networks. Effective use of computation requires a mixture of skills including structuring data, accessing data, and programming, choosing and applying computational analysis methods, and designing visualizations. This course covers the mixture of these skills with the goal of providing INFOSCI graduate students with the appreciation of their utility and ability to employ them in future research. This course is project-based, allowing students to understand the use of computational methods.
