In this class, you'll learn Prescriptive Analytics: how to model real situations as mathematical optimization (minimizing cost, maximizing lives saved, etc.), and the algorithms that computers use to solve those optimization problems. It's incredibly powerful--thousands of variables and constraints in class, and real-world problems can be solved with millions!
In this class, you'll learn Predictive Analytics: how to predict what will happen in a variety of real-world situations like time series data, queueing systems, insurance, etc.
