Course Description
Nowadays, many organizations produce and/or analyse huge quantities of data, which is becoming a
key asset for their strategies. The main objective of this course is to introduce students to the notion of
algorithmic intelligence, by providing a basic toolkit of algorithmic and quantitative methods to analyse
and extract value from data, in particular Big data. In addition, since IT and data are everywhere and
Internet of Things devices increasingly surround us, the course introduces basic notions of
cybersecurity, cryptocurrencies and Distributed Ledger Technology.

Teaching Method
Lectures will be based on oral presentations. Some kind of analysis will also be presented at the board,
and used for open discussions. Some part of every lecture will be dedicated to in-class discussions and
interaction between the instructor and students will be strongly encouraged. Some software tools for
Big data analysis will be used during the lessons, in particular for social network analysis and
recommendation systems.
