Data Analysis and Visualization with Python

Data drives most businesses and industries, but only when expressed properly. Data without probability and statistics might as well be an alien language. Probability and statistics allow us to gather insights from data, predict trends, and form data-driven hypotheses about the future.

This skill path introduces the basics of statistical analysis using R, including sampling, working with variables, and understanding frequency distribution tables. Additionally, you’ll learn how to use probability for analysis, and how to create and test hypotheses using significance testing.

  • Use R for statistics sampling, measuring variables, and managing distributions
  • Learn the fundamentals of probability, Bayes’ theorem, and the Naive Bayes algorithm
  • Discover how to handle probability density functions and create and support hypotheses
