Yale University – PhD in Statistics and Data Science


From Yale: “The Department offers a broad training program comprised of the main areas of statistical theory (with emphasis on foundations, Bayes theory, decision theory, nonparametric statistics), probability theory, stochastic processes, asymptotics, information theory, machine learning, data analysis, statistical computing, and graphical methods.”

Bayesian Modelling in Python


“Welcome to ‘Bayesian Modelling in Python’ – a tutorial for those interested in learning how to apply bayesian modelling techniques in python (PYMC3). This tutorial doesn’t aim to be a bayesian statistics tutorial – but rather a programming cookbook for those who understand the fundamental of bayesian statistics and want to learn how to build bayesian models using python. The tutorial sections and topics can be seen below. Contents Introduction Motivation … Continue Reading

Bayesian machine learning

/ /

From FastML: “So you know the Bayes rule. How does it relate to machine learning? It can be quite difficult to grasp how the puzzle pieces fit together – we know it took us a while. This article is an introduction we wish we had back then.” This article covers the following topics: Bayesians and Frequentists Priors, updates, and posteriors Inferring model parameters from data Model vs inference Statistical modelling … Continue Reading

Bayesian Data Analysis


From Amazon: “Winner of the 2016 De Groot Prize from the International Society for Bayesian Analysis Now in its third edition, this classic book is widely considered the leading text on Bayesian methods, lauded for its accessible, practical approach to analyzing data and solving research problems. Bayesian Data Analysis, Third Edition continues to take an applied approach to analysis using up-to-date Bayesian methods.

Bayesian Statistics


This is course 4 of 5 in the Statistics with R Specialization. From Coursera: “This course describes Bayesian statistics, in which one’s inferences about parameters or hypotheses are updated as evidence accumulates. You will learn to use Bayes’ rule to transform prior probabilities into posterior probabilities, and be introduced to the underlying theory and perspective of the Bayesian paradigm. The course will apply Bayesian methods to several practical problems, to show … Continue Reading

Introduction to Probability and Data


This is course 1 of 5 in the Statistics with R Specialization. From Coursera: “This course introduces you to sampling and exploring data, as well as basic probability theory and Bayes’ rule. You will examine various types of sampling methods, and discuss how such methods can impact the scope of inference. A variety of exploratory data analysis techniques will be covered, including numeric summary statistics and basic data visualization. You will … Continue Reading
