STAT 05 W — Statistics for Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Data Science: An Introduction
This course has no specific prerequisites and can be taken on a variety of levels. Beginners are encouraged to listen to the lectures and learn basic concepts. By the end of the course, beginners should have a sense of what these algorithms do. On a higher level, intermediate students can work some of the introductory problems that will be provided. On an advanced level (for students with a substantial math background who are interested in becoming data scientists), difficult math and stats problems will be covered. Students should be aware that this course will not make them an AI expert (this is not possible in ten sessions). On a basic level, the course will give students a taste of what statistics for AI is all about. On the highest level, the course will give students of a strong sense of what they need (and should be excited about) in order to pursue a career in this area.
