There are two essential skills for the data scientist: engineering and statistics. A great many data scientists are very strong engineers but feel like impostors when it comes to statistics. In this talk John will argue that the ability to program a computer gives you special access to the deepest and most fundamental ideas in statistics. John’s goal is to convince the non-statistician engineers in the audience that the road to statistical fluency is much, much shorter than they think.
