## 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

A bit dry overall, but I appreciate the rigor and precision, along with the practical examples in R. I learned a great deal.

Hi , this course opened a door for me in Data analysis. Very intuitive & must course for any person exploring data science.

Good course, but it could really use some PDFs with lecture notes ( as in contents of videos, not supplementary material).

This course has given me some good new insights into perceiving data and has got me started nicely I am very great full.

Good introduction and interesting topics. However, some of the model analyses are not appropriate and feels artificial.

As a graduate student pursuing Machine Learning, this was a great course for me to get introduced to Bayesian Models.

Well explained and articulated. You can apply it straight to your work problems. I really enjoyed doing the course.

Excellent introductory course. Some of the concepts in the later part of the course are not explained well though.

2019年7月3日

Overall great course, the last part (linear regression) seems somewhat disconnected from the rest of the course.

2018年1月1日

I can learn the concept, but need to understand the details well in other ways. eg. reading, or searching online

2017年8月28日

Very helpfull course. I will use the principles taugh for other topics like machine learning. Thans for sharing.

2020年10月3日

Great course with a good theory/practice balance, but examples could be a bit more refreshing and less boring.

2017年3月10日

The course is excellent to learn all the basic stuff needed to master the technique of Bayesian Data Analysis.

2020年6月25日

More assignments and live and truncky examples applying the principles would make course even more wonderful

I wish the last week were more explanatory. Although overall now I do have an idea. It's a good course. :-)

2020年8月4日

Could do with more exercises.

However, I found some elsewhere on the internet, so that was complementary

Pretty good introductory material overall. Only disappointing part was the section on linear regression.

2018年9月30日

Very nice introductory course, practical and to the point. Good starting point for more detailed courses

2018年1月11日

A little hurry in the normal distribution part, otherwise a great course for Bayesian introduction.

2019年3月7日

a little bit difficult, I think you need to hold a solide background toward inferential statistics

2018年5月16日

I expected more examples to be solved or at least it could be provided as supplementary materials

2020年1月3日

The course is good but requires a lot of homework if you are rusty on probability/statistics...

2017年11月11日

Very Useful

It was little difficult to understand what the professor , but anyway it was good.

Steep learning curve. really taxed my thinking capacity. I enjoyed it thoroughly!

A very good course which enlights me the study of bayesian statistics, thank you.
