Introduction to Aquaponic Systems Workshop

Aquaponics (also known as the integration of hydroponics with aquaculture) is gaining increased global attention as the fastest growing bio-integrated efficient intensive food production system. Aquaponics serves as a model of sustainable food production by following principles:
- The waste products of one biological system serve as nutrients for a second biological system.
- The integration of fish and plants results in a polyculture that increases diversity and yields multiple products.
- Water is re-used through biological filtration and recirculation, a closed system.
- Local food production provides access to healthy foods and enhances the local economy.

Greenhouse growers and farmers are taking note of aquaponics for several reasons:
- Hydroponic growers view fish-manured irrigation water as a source of organic fertilizer that enables plants to grow well.
- Fish farmers view hydroponics as a biofiltration method to facilitate intensive recirculation aquaculture.
- Greenhouse growers view aquaponics as a way to introduce organic hydroponic produce into the marketplace, since the only fertility input is fish feed and all of the nutrients pass through a biological process.
- Food-producing greenhouses – yielding two products from one production unit – are naturally appealing for niche marketing and green labeling.
- Aquaponics can enable the production of fresh vegetables and fish protein in arid regions and on water-limited farms, since it is water re-use system.
- Aquaponics is a working model of sustainable food production wherein plant and animal agriculture are integrated and recycling of nutrients and water filtration are linked.
- In addition to commercial application, aquaponics has become a popular training aid on integrated bio-systems with vocational agriculture programs and high school biology classes.

Introduction to Data Analysis

Introduction to Data Analysis sets a foundation for those interested in pursuing more advanced topics in data analysis.

Becoming a data analyst requires proficiency in several areas:
• Data wrangling
• Programming
• Statistical methods
• Machine learning
• Data visualization

There is truly a vast amount of open data available to anyone who knows where to find it, but data is often found in a form that does not lend itself to analysis.

Data wrangling is the use of tools and techniques to transform unstructured data into structured data from which descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics can be derived. Business leaders depend on high-quality, real-time analytics to make informed business decisions. This "business intelligence" enables a company to differentiate itself from its competition, but high-quality, real-time analytics is the end game. One has to walk before they can run. Data analysts often point out that roughly 70% of their work involves data wrangling.

This course sets you on a successful path in data analysis by building a solid foundation. A course will follow that introduces learners to machine learning via Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio.

Recommended Prep:

Algebra and basic statistics. No programming experience is required - the necessary R programming will be learned in the context of working with data sets.
