1-Day Data Science Modelling & Inference (LIVE Stream)
Learn Inference and Modeling, Two of the Most Widely Used Statistical Tools in Data Analysis.
Build Models, Make Inferences, and Deliver Interactive Data Products
Get the skills today’s employers demand. Statistical inference and modeling are indispensable for analyzing data affected by chance, and thus essential for data scientists. Once you understand this, you will be able to understand two concepts that are ubiquitous in data science: confidence intervals and p-values.
Learn the Critical Elements of Data Science Modelling and Inference
This course will show you how inference and modeling can be applied to develop the statistical approaches. You will learn concepts necessary to define estimates and margins of errors and learn how you can use these to make predictions relatively well and also provide an estimate of the precision of your forecast. Even if you’ve never written a line of code in your life, you’ll be able to follow this course and understand how you can use apply Data Science skills to any business and industry.
