WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
ABOUT TIMO
HARBOUR.SPACE 

The aim of the course is to introduce basic theories and methods of pure probability theory at an intermediate level and their applications to chosen topics of theory of statistical inference and machine learning. No knowledge of measure and integration theory is required, and only bare first statements of that will be included in the course. 

Techniques developed in this course are important in AI, time series analysis, financial analysis, signal processing, econometrics, and other branches of engineering and science. The course gives also a background and motivation for studies of advanced courses in probability and statistics.
