Storytelling skills are among the most important skills today – the skills we all should practice. When combined with data, stories can become powerful tools in the digital industry.
About the module
Our society is based on stories that are the foundation of the way we communicate, live and dream. In the introduction to the module, a short overview of storytelling technology development will be presented with special focus on education/government/business (learning-by-doing) and data science, as well as advanced visualization. We will describe and conduct a characteristic data science project and demonstrate techniques related to the big data infrastructure, and the way we use mathematical rules for various activities across different phases of these projects. During module labs, we will master the use of data and advanced visualization tools combined with large data sets to gain content and the way we can tell a story with the help of this content.

In order to do that you will master different techniques of visualization and exploratory data analysis. You will acquire the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in the field of data science, characterized by large volumes of data. You will also be introduced to a variety of tools for visualization and exploratory data analysis.
