Data Science is a rapidly emerging discipline at the intersection of statistics, machine learning, data visualization, and mathematical modeling.  This course will provide an introduction to data science methods for social scientists, focusing on methods for networks and text-oriented data associated with social media.   I will present modern approaches to natural language processing (NLP) based on machine learning, and vector representations (embeddings) for effectively capturing network data in predictive models.   The final choice of topics will depend upon student interests.
This minicourse will be based on the instructor's book, "The Data Science Design Manual", Springer-Verlag, 2017.
