Wanna see my collection of random numbers?

My friend Knut and I gave a talk about computation-based statistics at an IT-conference.

The talk is a crash course for programmers. We covered:

  • statistical concepts
  • Monte Carlo simulation
  • resampling techniques
  • stochastic search
  • Bayesian statistics

We relied heavily on visualizations and code snippets instead of formulas, in an attempt to appeal to programmers specifically.

Below is a YouTube recording. The PDF slides and source code is also available.
