Resources for Statistics/Machine Learning That Are Good For Programmers
Statistics are coming up more and in programming situations across all fields of study. Knowing a bit of stats can really help you solve problems with big data sets and enable you to create some interesting features for products. Especially with all the large data sets being created by social media and other online services knowing some statistics can help immensely when trying to create innovative products.
The field of machien learning has been taking off as well, and it being used across all academic disciplines as a way to learn more about complex systems. The past semester I have been doing some work with machine learning and here are some of the resources I’ve found helpful in studies.
- Think Stats (Deals with Python)
- Machine Learning For Hackers
- Elements of Statistical Learning
- OpenIntro Statistics
- R Programming/Linear Models
- R Tutorial Series
- Pragmatic Programming Techniques
- Vince Buffalo’s Site
- Reddit Machine Learning
There are loads of more resources out there, but these are the ones that have helped me out the most the past few months.
