Learn the math behind uncertainty — and how to get rid of it!

13 Lessons

Can you put a number on how much you don't know? (Sure you can!) When you learn something new, how should it change your beliefs about how the world works? (It depends!) Is there some formula for that? (Why, yes, there is.)

This course gives you tools for managing uncertainty and interpreting information. You will learn cutting edge mathematics like Information Theory, Bayesian Networks and Causal Inference, but without calculations getting in the way. The emphasis is on applying these ideas to deal with the uncertainty in your life.
