Statistics for Machine Learning: Day 1

Machine Learning Mastery now has a 7 day email-based course on Statistics for Machine Learning. Naturally I signed up. Day 1’s assignment is to list 3 reasons why I want to learn statistics. 3️⃣

  1. I want to move from being an AI researcher to an AI practitioner and I think enhancing my statistics knowledge will help. Plus, the more I learn related to the field the better equipped I will be.
  2. Even beyond ML statistics will be useful for my work in analytics and the steps I want to take towards data science.
  3. I didn’t do great in statistics in college and it still bugs me because I love math and numbers and really should have done better.
