Forensic data processing

2022 DISC

The goal of this course is to get you thinking more critically about your data: how was it recorded, what is in it, and what happened to it on the way from the field to numbers in a file. It should give you the basic concepts you need to wring more from your data by teaching you how to analyze your data quantitatively, like a scientist or engineer performing a forensic investigation.
