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 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.

wrote in my comment.

The course is extremely well presented and the difficulty level of the excercises is perfect.

Great course as an introduction to Bayesian Statistics. Interesting material and the pace was very reasonable.

2020年8月4日

Excellent material, examples, and quizzes. Does not trade technicality for practicality, both being abundant.

2018年2月6日

Very good! Going through this course, one would get basic idea about Bayesian Statistics and conjugate prior.

2017年5月23日

A Good Introduction to Bayesian Statistics. I always get quick response after I post a question on the forum.

2020年8月23日

Very Good Course. It is decently paced and comprehensive enough to get you started with Bayesian Statistics.

2018年2月18日

The coolest part of this lecture is mathematical explanation of concepts, especially about conjugate priors.

I strongly recommend this course. Clear structure and insightful questions. Thanks for instructor's inputs.
