The course (code: 39170-ENG) is devised for master students in Mechanical Engineering, curriculum SMART TECHNOLOGY ENGINEERING. At the end of the module, the student has knowledge of a wide range of problems typical of the data science and automation settings. In particular, the student is able to:

  • formulate a business problem as a data science problem, using the most suitable technique to solve them
  • formulate and solve regression and classification problems
  • formualte and solve problems of image analysis and object recognition
  • apply clustering and dimensionality reduction techniques; estimate real-time non-measurable physical quantities
  • formulate and solve a fault diagnosis problem in an industrial environment
