MATLAB Tools for Teaching and Research
An Introduction to Predictive Data Analytics

Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña
Salón de Actos – EEBE
25 de Octubre
12:00 – 15:00


In the first half of this seminar, we will explore the teaching and research tools available in MATLAB with the Total Academic Headcount license (campus-wide access license) and e-learning platforms, such as:

The second part of the seminar will be delivered in English. You will learn how Data Analytics can turn large volumes of complex data into actionable information and improve design and decision-making processes. You will learn approaches and techniques available in MATLAB to tackle these challenges, including:

  • Accessing, exploring, and analyzing data stored in files, the web, and data warehouses.
  • Tips for cleaning, visualizing, and combining complex multivariate data sets.
  • Prototyping, testing, and refining predictive models using machine learning methods.
  • Integrating and running analytics within enterprise business systems and interactive web applications

Who Should Attend

Teachers, researchers, and students interested in learning more about MATLAB capabilities for Data Analysis and Machine Learning, as well as MathWorks e-learning software and tools available at the university.
