Statistical experiment design and analytics are at the heart of data science. In this course you will design statistical experiments and analyze the results using modern methods. You will also explore the common pitfalls in interpreting statistical arguments, especially those associated with big data. Collectively, this course will help you internalize a core set of practical and effective machine learning methods and concepts, and apply them to solve some real world problems.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PRACTICAL PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS: MODELS AND METHODS
Nive that the course covered a broad range of topics.
And good to get pushed to do some kaggle competition and peer review.
The entire course is an overview! This course will be a revision if you already know the concepts.
Professor Bill Howe gives great reactions to when there are typos on the slides!
Excellent Lectures. Since the course is several years old the organization of some of the assignments needs updating. That's the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.
