MIT Probability course

 

Course instructor: Jānis Lazovskis

 

Probabilistic models use the language of mathematics. But instead of relying on the traditional "theorem-proof" format, we develop the material in an intuitive but still rigorous and mathematically-precise manner. The course covers all of the basic probability concepts, including, multiple discrete or continuous random variables, expectations, laws of large numbers, the main tools of Bayesian inference methods, and others. This course is a part of the MITx MicroMasters program in Statistics and Data Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA).
