Description

In this course, you will learn foundational knowledge of time series data processing and analysis using the MATLAB software. First, you will learn how to import time series data from text and Excel files. Next, you will discover methods for cleaning data including smoothing and normalizing. Then, you will implement time-varying statistical comparisons between two foreign exchange rates. Finally, you will explore how to visualize the results and export the graphs. When you’re finished with this course, you will have an overview of time series data science workflow in MATLAB.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Mike Cohen, and welcome to my course, Building Your First Data Analysis Workflow with MATLAB. I am an associate professor of neuroscience at the Radboud University in the Netherlands, and I've been using MATLAB almost every day in my research and in my teaching for about 20 years. MATLAB is a powerful software for simulations and large-scale data analysis in fields like computational biology, physics, engineering, and finance. It's widely used both in higher education and in industry, particularly for a large-scale data analysis. MATLAB was developed in the early 80s, and it continues today with its core mission of making applied mathematics easy and approachable to anyone with even basic coding skills. By the end of this course, you'll have a good sense of what a data science application in MATLAB feels like, you'll learn about importing and cleaning time series data, performing time varying statistical analyses to compare two data streams, and you'll learn both basic and advanced data visualizations. You can follow along this course regardless of your level of experience in MATLAB; however, you will need access to the MATLAB program, or alternatively, you can use Octave, which is a free cross-platform application. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn data science with Building Your First Data Analysis Workflow with MATLAB, here at Pluralsight.
