BEWARE OF THE TITLE! This course has nothing in it about “Big Data.” It would be better titled “Everyday Analysis,” “Introduction to Analytics,” or similar. It is really a beginner level discussion about analyzing various things in life. It does not tell you anything at all about how to manipulate, store, index, or physically process very large data sets. You will not learn anything if you have any kind of computer background. If, however, you are a computer novice and you are curious about how to quantitatively approach common things in life like sports, then you may find the course interesting. Finally, although he is a dynamic speaker, I found the instructor very self-aggrandizing.
