The job of a data scientist is to glean knowledge from complex and noisy datasets.
Reasoning about uncertainty is inherent in the analysis of noisy data. Probability and Statistics provide the mathematical foundation for such reasoning.
In the Probability and Statistics in Data Science using Python Certificate, part of the Data Science MicroMasters Program from EdX in partnership with University of California, San Diego - UC San DiegoX, you will learn the foundations of probability and statistics. You will learn both the mathematical theory, and get a hands-on experience of applying this theory to actual data using Jupyter notebooks.
Concepts covered included: random variables, dependence, correlation, regression, PCA, entropy and MDL.
