Introduction:

 

Computer science as an academic discipline began in the 1960’s. Emphasis was on programming languages, compilers, operating systems, and the mathematical theory that supported these areas. Courses in theoretical computer science covered finite automata, regular expressions, context free languages, and computability. 

 

Introduction to Graphical Models and Bayesian Networks

DSA ADS Course - 2022

Graphical Models, Bayesian Networks, Applied Probability, Probabilistic Causation, Causal Inference

Applied data scientists require high-level understanding of probability theory and specialized techniques to design systems and solve problems in the real world.  Graphical model formalism provides a natural framework for the design of new data science systems.
