The analysis of larger datasets is a productive way to obtain new empirical insights into real-world phenomena. With a critical attitude to the creation and interpretation of data, this course provides a basic step-by-step hands-on introduction of the processes of data gathering, data cleaning, explorative data analysis and visualization. As an example of an object-oriented language useful for this purpose, we use Python with its large array of functional modules (libraries) and integrations for our exercises. The process of selection, cleaning and analysis of data lead us to discuss reliability, predictability, categorization and information security. This module is anchored in the Research group of Communication, Media and Information technologies, Department of Electronic Systems.
