A staggering amount of data is created everyday; analyzing and organizing this enormous amount of data can be quite a complex task. Haskell is a powerful and well-designed functional programming language that is designed to work with complex data. It is trending in the field of data science as it provides a powerful platform for robust data science practices.

This course will introduce the basic concepts of Haskell and move on to discuss how Haskell can be used to solve the issues by using the real-world data.

The course will guide you through the installation procedure, after you have all the tools that you require in place, you will explore the basic concepts of Haskell including the functions, and the data structures.

It will also discuss the various formats of raw data and the procedures for cleaning the data and plotting them.

With a good hold on the basics of Haskell and data analysis, you will then be introduced to advanced concepts of data analysis such as Kernel Density Estimation, Hypothesis testing, Regression analysis, text analysis, clustering, Naïve Bayes Classification, and Principal Component Analysis.


fter completing this course, you will be equipped to analyze data and organize them using advanced algorithms.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand the basic concepts of data analysis
  • Create Haskell functions for the common descriptive statistics functions
  • Learn to apply regular expressions in large-scale datasets
  • Plot data with the gnuplot tool and the EasyPlot library
  • Reduce the size of data without affecting the data’s effectiveness using Principal Component Analysis
  • Master the techniques necessary to perform multivariate regression using Haskell code

Style and Approach:

The integrated course follows a step-by-step approach that uses real-world data and examples to build on the concepts covered.

This course is a blend of text, videos, code examples, and assessments, all packaged up keeping your journey in mind.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
