## 課程概述

This course introduces the Bayesian approach to statistics, starting with the concept of probability and moving to the analysis of data. We will learn about the philosophy of the Bayesian approach as well as how to implement it for common types of data. We will compare the Bayesian approach to the more commonly-taught Frequentist approach, and see some of the benefits of the Bayesian approach. In particular, the Bayesian approach allows for better accounting of uncertainty, results that have more intuitive and interpretable meaning, and more explicit statements of assumptions. This course combines lecture videos, computer demonstrations, readings, exercises, and discussion boards to create an active learning experience. For computing, you have the choice of using Microsoft Excel or the open-source, freely available statistical package R, with equivalent content for both options. The lectures provide some of the basic mathematical development as well as explanations of philosophy and interpretation. Completion of this course will give you an understanding of the concepts of the Bayesian approach, understanding the key differences between Bayesian and Frequentist approaches, and the ability to do basic data analyses....

Good intro to Bayesian Statistics. Covers the basic concepts. Workload is reasonable and quizzes/exercises are helpful. Could include more exercises and additional backgroung/future reading materials.

An excellent course with some good hands on exercises in both R and excel. Not for the faint of heart mathematically speaking, assumes a competent understanding of statistics and probability going in

Very informative and clear presentation of the material, which makes it fun and quick to learn the topics. Very good quiz questions.

This course is a very good introductory of bayesian statistics. But it better that you have known the basic statistics inference.

A clear and compact introduction. Quizzes and exercises are relevant. I got acces to grades and feedback in the audit one I took.

Learned something new :). Lecture were excellent, but, I need time to digest and hope I will get opportunity to use it in future.

I studied basic theory from these lectures. I will try again and again until I understand Baysian Statistics concept completely.

Quite interesting course ant not too long. I learnt many interesting and useful concepts in statistics. Highly recommendable.

Very well explained. Lectures are given in a very nice way as the professor writes. Exercises and quizzes are very well done.

Become very clear about all the formula and derivation of Bayesian Statistics after taking this course. Strongly recommended.

The video content is not too much. However, students can learn and practise a lot from supplementary materials and quizzes.

Very useful crash course in Bayesian Statistics. It requires some basic knowledge in statistics and probability as stated.

2019年8月15日

This course was dense, concise, and yet easy to follow for individuals that are fairly comfortable with basic statistics.

2018年8月26日

A really hard course but useful for those who want to know more about statistics and how it is related to Bayes' theorem.

It's a good introductory course to Bayesian statistics, a second part with Gibbs Sampling, Markov and MCMC would be nice.

The teacher is excellent and charming and the course is also easy to follow. However, with more exercise will be better!

Very good introduction to baysian concepts and very helpful in understanding the difference with frequentist statistics.

Initially I was a bit put off. But what a compilation of well thought set of lectures and quizzes! Thoroughly enjoyed.

Marvellous course! Thank you very much! I would really appreciate, if you'll create an advanced version of this course

Very interesting. It can help taking notes during the course... to avoid going again through it and take them ex-post.

Excellent course, although it would have been nice to get more content on uninformative priors and Fisher information.

2016年9月24日

This course are excellent and Thanks for Prof for offering the course. I've learned a lot from the course. Thank you.

2017年3月10日

I have learned a lot from this course. As there is not course like this one in my univeristy, I really appreiate it.

Great starting point to study bayesian statistics, though it requires some previous knowledge on basic statistics.

2020年8月3日

I learned a ton about statistics and probability distributions. It was great prep for my machine learning classes.

I'm a graduate student in mechanical engineering. Thanks for the open course, it is really convenient and helpful!
