Fundamentals of Bayesian Data Analysis in R

via Datacamp

Overview

Learn what Bayesian data analysis is, how it works, and why it is a useful tool to have in your data science toolbox.

Bayesian data analysis is an approach to statistical modeling and machine learning that is becoming more and more popular. It provides a uniform framework to build problem specific models that can be used for both statistical inference and for prediction. This course will introduce you to Bayesian data analysis: What it is, how it works, and why it is a useful tool to have in your data science toolbox.
