Applied Statistics: Inference and Modeling


This course teaches students how to build on statistical foundations for data science with attention to the analysis of multivariate data. Basic machine learning methods – such as linear discriminant analysis, logistic regression and principal components analysis – are discussed. Emphasis is on interpretation of the analysis rather than calculations.
