Data Analytics

Data analytics, still not quite well defined, can be regarded as the collective science of processing and/or analyzing data for the purpose of knowledge discovery. In this respect, it encompasses parts of statistics, mathematics, machine learning, computer science, and any other field that involves data processing and/or analysis. Current areas of data analytics research at WSU the theoretical foundation of deep learning models, modern statistical learning methodology, entropy models for time series, sampling and optimization in complex and discrete domains, and applications to a broad variety of real-world problems. These application areas include political redistricting and gerrymandering, analysis of social media data with network models, economic data concerning world trade and market pricing, and genomics and bio-informatics applications studies.
