Why do I need to learn about probability and statistics?
Probability and statistics are fundamental tools for understanding many modern theories and techniques such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, data mining, security, digital imagine processing and natural language processing.
What can I do after finishing learning about probability and statistics?
You will be prepared to learn modern theories and techniques to create modern security, machine learning, data mining, image processing or natural language processing software.
That sounds useful! What should I do now?
