MITx: Data Analysis: Statistical Modeling and Computation in Applications

A hands-on introduction to the interplay between statistics and computation for the analysis of real data. — Part of the MITx MicroMasters program in Statistics and Data Science.


What you’ll learn

  • Model, form hypotheses, perform statistical analysis on real data
  • Use dimension reduction techniques such as principal component analysis to visualize high-dimensional data and apply this to genomics data
  • Analyze networks (e.g. social networks) and use centrality measures to describe the importance of nodes, and apply this to criminal networks
  • Model time series using moving average, autoregressive and other stationary models for forecasting with financial data
  • Use Gaussian processes to model environmental data and make predictions
  • Communicate analysis results effectively
