In this course, we’ll build on the fundamentals of probabilities, including the theoretical and empirical probabilities, the probability rules ( the addition rule and the multiplication rule), and the counting techniques (the rule of product, permutations, and combinations).
You’ll learn to assign probabilities to events based on certain conditions by using conditional probability rules, to assign probabilities to events based on whether they are in a relationship of statistical independence or not with other events, and to assign probabilities to events based on prior knowledge by using Bayes’s theorem. You’ll also learn to create a spam filter for SMS messages using the multinomial Naive Bayes algorithm.
Best of all, you’ll learn by doing — you’ll practice and get feedback directly in the browser.
