“Data Scientist is a person who is better at statistics than any programmer and better at programming than any statistician.” – Josh Wills

Statistics for Data Science

In this course, we lay your foundation on Data Science. More often than not participants rush into learning data science without knowing what exactly they are getting into: this course will give you insights and clarity on what data science is all about.

Statistics, Math, Linear Algebra

If we talk in general about Data Science, then for a serious understanding and work we need a fundamental course in probability theory (and therefore, mathematical analysis as a necessary tool in probability theory), linear algebra and, of course, mathematical statistics. Fundamental mathematical knowledge is important in order to be able to analyze the results of applying data processing algorithms. There are examples of relatively strong engineers in machine learning without such a background, but this is rather the exception.

Data Mining and Data Visualization

Data Mining is an important analytic process designed to explore data. It is the process of analyzing hidden patterns of data according to different perspectives for categorization into useful information, which is collected and assembled in common areas, such as data warehouses, for efficient analysis, data mining algorithms, facilitating business decision making and other information requirements to ultimately cut costs and increase revenue.

Machine Learning

Machine learning allows you to train computers to act independently so that we do not have to write detailed instructions for performing certain tasks. For this reason, machine learning is of great value for almost any area, but first of all, of course, it will work well where there is Data Science.

Programming (Python & R)

We recommend all our students to learn both the programming languages and use them where appropriate since many Data Science teams today are bilingual, leveraging both R and Python in their work.

Through our Four-part series we will take you step by step, this is our first part which will lay your foundation. We will deal with the below sections in this Part 1:

  • Data Science Roles

  • Data Science Insights

  • Terminologies and Statistical Methods in Data Science

  • Discrete and Continuous random variables

  • Basics of descriptive statistics

  • Understanding Percentile

How long do I have access to the course materials?
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Can I take my courses with me wherever I go?
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
