This course focuses on the Bayesian approach to probability and statistics and applies it to tools and methods used in data science. This course starts with a brief review of the tenets of probability that form the foundation for Bayes Theorem. Next, it discusses Bayes Theorem in-depth. Then, it considers the Bayesian approach to inference, examines the Naïve Bayes model, and develops Bayesian regression. (Prerequisite: MATH328)
