Statistical Methods for Machine Learning – Disconver how to Transform data into Knowledge with Python – Jason Brownlee

Statistics is important to machine learning practitioners.

  • Statistics is a prerequisite in most courses and books on applied machine learning.
  • Statistical methods are used at each step in an applied machine learning project.
  • Statistical learning is the applied statistics equivalent of predictive modeling in machine learning.

A machine learning practitioner cannot be e ective without an understanding of basic statistical concepts and statistics methods, and an e ective practitioner cannot excel without being aware of and leveraging the terminology and methods used in the sister field of statistical learning.
