ESD.86J Models, Data and Inference for Socio-Technical Systems

Class Info

Use data and systems knowledge to build models of complex socio-technical systems for improved system design and decision-making. Enhance model-building skills, including: review and extension of functions of random variables, Poisson processes, and Markov processes. Move from applied probability to statistics via Chi-squared t and f tests, derived as functions of random variables. Review classical statistics, hypothesis tests, regression, correlation and causation, simple data mining techniques, and Bayesian vs. classical statistics. Class project.

This class has ESD.83, and 6.041 as prerequisites.

ESD.86J will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by R. Larson and R. Welsch.

Lecture occurs 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in E51-372.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

In the Spring 2015 Subject Evaluations, ESD.86J was rated 5.4 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the http://www.google.com/search?&q=MIT+%2B+ESD.86&btnG=Google+Search&inurl=https site.
