Welcome!

We are very excited that you've decided to join our micro-course and become an expert in Probability and Statistics for Data Science. The course consists of the following topics:

  • Introduction to Probability and Statistics.
  • Probability theory and distributions.
  • Conditional probability
  • Bayes theorem.
  • Law of large numbers.
  • Central limit theorem.
  • Hypothesis testing.

  • Understand probability theory behind Machine Learning models. 
  • Undestand statistical terminology.
  • Understand conditional probabilities.
  • Apply Law of large numbers and Central limit theorem in real world situations.
  • Using hypothesis testing framework.
  • Apply all concepts above in Python.
