The techniques of data science used to produce predictive and adaptive decision support techniques with particular emphasis on prediction, optimisation and search methods.
All businesses make decisions based on an understanding of their historical, current and predicted environments. Adaptive Business Intelligence introduces methods for supporting robust decision making in a business context, leading to graduates with the confidence to visualise, understand and predict relevant aspects of a business process. Given the future of improving business processes is to understand what has happened and what will happen, INFO 424 delivers some fundamental skills that all business graduates need.
