### 3 Reasons to Fall in Love With Bayesian Statistics

So for the past month or so, I have been writing a lot of posts about Bayesian Statistics.You might be wondering why I’ve spent so much time in the area. You might even suspect that you know the answer, but […]

### 5 Resources to Get you Started in Data Science

Data science is a huge and ever expanding field. It deals heavily with math, computers, statistics, and all sorts of other disciplines. Jumping into data science often feels overwhelming, because frankly, it is. I often hear questions similar to this […]

### Monte Carlo Integration in Python

My last post was pretty intense, so I thought that I would drop back down to something a little bit simpler for this post, before I go off and start in on the March Madness stuff again. It turns out […]

### Predicting March Madness Winners with Bayesian Statistics in PYMC3!

So in the last two blog posts, I talked about how to do some bayesian inference in the realm of some linear models. And that is all well and good, but we can have even more fun in a bayesian […]

### Bayesian Logistic Regression in Python using PYMC3

In my last post I talked about bayesian linear regression. A fairly straightforward extension of bayesian linear regression is bayesian logistic regression. Actually, it is incredibly simple to do bayesian logistic regression. If you were following the last post that […]

### Bayesian Poisson A/B Testing in PYMC3 on Python

This post is a direct response to the request made by @Zecca_Lehn on twitter (Yes I will write tutorials on your suggestions). What he wanted to know was how to do a Bayesian Poisson A/B tests. So for those of […]
