Bayesian Statistics

“Bayesian Statistics” is course 4 of 5 in the Statistics with R Coursera Specialization. The course describes Bayesian statistics, in which one’s inferences about parameters or hypotheses are updated as evidence accumulates. Students learn to use Bayes’ rule to transform prior probabilities into posterior probabilities and are introduced to the underlying theory and perspective of the Bayesian paradigm.
