I recently shared a bit of the history of The Science of Data Analysis. I thought I would follow that up with a quick chalk talk titled “What is Statistics?”
Data Scientist and trainer at Win Vector LLC. One of the authors of Practical Data Science with R.
I love simple and effective explanations. Learning statistics is not an easy task, but for some (like me) it is truly exciting. It’s interesting to realize that in essence it’s about identifying patterns and relationships, experiencing probabilities, and communicating the results transparently.
