About this Unit
There has been a significant trend away from simple statistical models for complex and Big Data. Advanced Statistical Methods is a technical unit that looks at computer intensive statistical techniques for modelling complex data. Students will learn about methods including Density Estimation, the Expectation-Maximisation (EM) algorithm, Bayesian, Markovian and Hidden Markov Models, enabling them to apply sophisticated statistical tools in a Data Science setting.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Access to a computer is required.
