I'll be busy in my spare time for the next 9 weeks.  I decided to sign up for MITx course: "Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science".  The cost for verified certificate track was a donation of $50, for which I did not mind paying whatsoever.

Here is the list of lecture topics.  It should be fun!!

  • Plotting
  • Simulations and Random Walks
  • Probability
  • Stochastic Programming and Hashing
  • Monte Carlo Simulations
  • Using Randomness to Solve Non-Random Problems
  • Curve Fitting
  • Knapsack Problem
  • Graphs and Graph Optimization
  • Machine Learning
  • Statistical Fallacies
  • Research videos
