Course Aims

Due to the inherent uncertainty in the world, probability and statistics are used in many areas of computer science, such as data science, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, networking, algorithms, and software testing.  In this course, students will learn concepts for computational modeling of random phenomenon, probability, and statistical inference. Students will write computer programs to simulate random phenomenon and analyze real-world data with computational probability models.
