The most genuine talk about DataScience and Python
‘ At Baidu, our goal is to develop hard AI technologies that impact hundreds of millions of users across the world’. – Andrew Ng
In case you missed it, let me set the context of this erudite discussion which happened on Reddit on 14th April 2015. This was an AMA with Andrew Ng, Chief Scientist at Baidu Research/Coursera Co-Founder/Stanford Professor and Adam Coates, Director of Baidu Silicon Valley AI Labs.
I’m going to start this post with a confession: Up until a few days ago, the only thing I knew about p-values was that Randall Munroe didn’t seem to like them. My background is in geometry, not statistics, even though I occasionally try to fake it. But it turns out that a lot of other people don’t like p-values either, such as the journal Basic and Applied Social Psychology which recently banned them. So I decided to do some reading (primarily Wikipedia) and it turns out, like most things in the world of data, there’s some very interesting geometry involved, at least if you know where to look.
