3.5 Units (Degree Applicable)
Lecture: 54   Lab: 27
Advisory: CISP 21 or CISP 71 or CISP 31 or CISP 41

A broad introduction to machine learning and its implementation to solve real-world business problems. Includes end-to-end process of investigating data through a machine learning lens and how to extract and identify useful features that best represent data and evaluate the performance of different machine learning algorithms. Topics include: supervised learning (linear regression, logistic regression, support vector machines, k-nearest neighbors, decision trees, random forest, and gradient boosted tree); unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, kernel methods); reinforcement learning and adaptive control.

CISB 62  Deep Learning in Business

3.5 Units (Not Degree Applicable)
Lecture: 54   Lab: 27
Prerequisite: CISB 60

To learn the most cutting-edge deep learning algorithms and technique. Covers building deep learning prediction models of different complexities, from simple linear logistic regression to major categories of neural networks including convolutional neural networks (CNNs), recurrent neural networks (RNNs), long short-term memory (LSTMs), gated recurrent units (GRUs), and more. Structured around special coding blueprint approaches not mathematical complexities. Valuable hands-on experience with real-world business challenges.

CISB 63  Natural Language Processing in Business

3.5 Units (Not Degree Applicable)
Lecture: 54   Lab: 27
Prerequisite: CISB 60

To learn natural language processing and its application in business. Regular expressions. Tokenization and text normalization. Part of speech tagging and grammar parsing. Extracting named entities from text. Feature engineering for text using count vector and term frequency-inverse document frequency (TF-IDF) representations of text. Mastering the art of text cleaning. Semantics and sentiment analysis. Interpreting patterns from text using laten Dirichlet allocation (LDA) and non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) topic models. Text generation with long short term memory algorithm. Creating chatbots.

CISB 81  Work Experience in Office Technology

1-4 Units (Degree Applicable)
(May be taken for Pass/No Pass only)
Lab: 60-300
Prerequisite: Compliance with Work Experience regulations as designated in the College Catalog

Provides students with actual on-the-job experience in an approved worksite, which is related to classroom-based learning. A minimum of 75 paid clock hours or 60 nonpaid clock hours per semester of supervised work is required for each one unit of credit. It is recommended that the hours per week be equally distributed throughout the semester. Work experience placement is not guaranteed, but assistance is provided.
