Statistics for Data Science
This course is available only as a part of subscription plans.
The emergence of data science as a discipline has impacted businesses in a range of different ways. One primary impact has been to elevate the use of data in decision-making by using statistical methods to assess the ever-growing datasets companies are collecting. This workshop will review and introduce statistical techniques and touch on more advanced methods for dealing with noisy data and applying real-world constraints to analyses. This workshop assumes a working knowledge of standard statistical methods and will aim to connect theory to practice using real-world examples.
