Description

The tools of machine learning - algorithms, solution techniques, and even neural network architectures, are becoming commoditized. Everyone is using the same tools these days, so your edge needs to come from how well you adapt those tools to your data. Today, more than ever, it is important that you really know your data well.

In this course, Building Statistical Summaries with R, you will gain the ability to harness the full power of inferential statistics, which are truly richly supported in R.

First, you will learn how hypothesis testing, which is the foundation of inferential statistics, helps posit and test assumptions about data. Next, you will discover how the classic t-test can be used in a variety of common scenarios around estimating means. You will also learn about related tests such as the Z-test, the Pearson’s Chi-squared test, Levene’s test and Welch’s t-test for dealing with populations that have unequal variances.

Finally, you will round out your knowledge by using ANOVA, a powerful statistical technique used to measure statistical properties across different categories of data. Along the way, you will explore several variants of ANOVA, including one-way, two-way, Kruskal-Wallis, and Welch’s ANOVA.

You will build predictive models using linear regression and classification and finally, you will understand A/B testing, and implement both the frequentist and the Bayesian approaches to implement this incredibly powerful technique.

When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to use powerful techniques from hypothesis testing, including t-tests, ANOVA and Bayesian A/B testing in order to measure the strength of statistical relationships within your data.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, My name is Johnny Ravi, and welcome to the scores on building Statistical. Somebody's with are a little about myself. I have a master's in electrical engineering from Stanford and have worked at companies such as Microsoft, Google and Flip Card at Google. I was one of the first engineers working on real time collaborative editing in Google Dogs and I hold four patterns for its underlying technology's. I currently work on my own startup lunatic on a studio for high quality video content. In this course, you will gain the ability to harness the full power of inferential statistics, which are truly richly supported. In our first, you will learn how hypothesis testing, which is the foundation of inferential statistics, helps posit and test assumptions about data. Next, you will discover how the classic T test can be used in a variety of common scenarios around estimating means. You'll also learn about related deaths that as the Z test, the Pearson Sky Square test, Levin's test and vultures details for dealing with populations that have unequal variances. Finally, you drowned out your knowledge by using a nova, a powerful statistical technique used to measure statistically properties across different categories off data Along the way, you'll explore several variants, often over, including one way to pay for school Wallace and vultures, and over you will build predictive models using linear regression and logistic regression. And finally, you will understand a be testing an implement both frequent ist invasion approaches To implement this incredibly powerful technique. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to use powerful techniques from hypothesis testing, including T Test a Nova and Beijing A. Be testing in order to measure the strength of statistical relationships for the new data.
