4. Analysing the use of statistics to tally top ten greats in the world of football.

The sports arena has been revolutionised with the use of data analytics, thereby, bringing out new dimensions of analysis. While using these spatio-temporal tools, students have to keep the authenticity of data as an important parameter. The numerous aspects of the sport such as goals, assists, tackles, saves, etc. are also thoroughly analysed. The analysis of the wins and losses are also an important part of this dissertation. The role of a sports analysts must be taken up by the students in order to discuss all outcomes of these investigation.

5. Anticipating depression levels among the teens of Australia through the data analysis of their respective social media posts.

In this dissertation, the digital analytics regarding social media usage is taken into consideration. It looks into every aspect of behaviour in the Australian teens. The data is collected and accordingly examined with the help of various statistical tools. The analysis of data is plotted specifically to find out how social media posts help in tracking their respective depression levels. The degree of frustration among the youth can be due to various factors, and social media analysis can guide us get a clear understanding about each of them. Recommendation regarding the same would also be provided while preparing this dissertation.

6. A robust clinical decision support system that can diagnose a disease using classification techniques.

The clinical support system that is framed keeping every parameter in consideration can easily help in diagnosis. Such analysis is mainly expounding various aspects of data analytics. While examining numerous classification techniques, its parameters are also thoroughly studied making the system robust. Every detail is examined and plotted in a graph, thereby, framing an orderly and vigorous structure for diagnosis. The data collected during this dissertation research consists information of the disease as well as its timeline. Here the concern is not just limited to data mining, but also maintaining the privacy of such confidential data.

7. Compare and contrast all applications for educational data mining regarding chemical engineering course in Australia.

Chemical engineering has been one of the most lucrative engineering courses. The data collected in this regard is also analysed and is compared with other educational courses. Such data mining is done using statistical and analytical tools. The various applications in this regard have to be thoroughly studied and accordingly utilised to arrive at a proper conclusion. While analysing these details every parameter must be taken into consideration. Further, the contribution made by the engineers from this field must also be examined. The recommendations made for enhancing the understanding of this topic is to be made sincerely.

8. Sentiment analysis among young women in Australia after Donald Trump got elected as President of USA.

While preparing this dissertation, the data collected from mostly young women needs to be analysed to find out their reaction after Donald Trump was elected as the President of America. The examination of various reactions that outpoured in the social media and the streets of USA as well as across the world. The protest is documented well and evaluated as per the age group of the women. All analytics of social media is used to conclude the results of this research. Further, recommendations are also made on how this sample size is selected in order to get a better and
reliable data.

9. Forecasting students’ performance in their terminal examination using multilayer perceptron and linear regression.

Here the students’ performance is tracked using various statistical methods. These methods help in finding out specifics about each and every student. These particulars are essential if one has to analyse and come out with a statistical model regarding the students’ performance in their final examination. The use of linear regression would aid in formulating an equation with the dependent variable in this study. In this case, there can be two binary values – pass and fail. Moreover, the degree of performance – grades, can also be analysed during this study.
