In this project-based course, you will learn about Markov chains and use them to build a probabilistic model of an entire book’s text. This will be done from first principles, without libraries. Markov chains are a simple but fundamental approach to modeling stochastic processes, with many practical applications. By the end of this project, you will have generated a random new text based on the book you modeled, using code you wrote in Python.

Skills you will develop

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)

  • Probability Theory

  • Python Programming

  • Numpy

  • Markov Chain
