Edeltävät opinnot tai edeltävä osaaminen

Basic studies of Bsc level statistics including linear models, linear algebra and R software.


Knowledge of methods for high-dimensional inference problems and practical experience of solving them with computer.


Recommended time/stage of studies for completion: 1. or 2. year.

The course is lectured every second year.


Statistical inference when either the number of data units is large and/or each unit has been measured on a large number of variables.

1. Large scale inference (P-values, false discovery rates, Bayesian posterior probabilities).

2. Variable selection (stepwise regression, AIC, BIC; penalized regression with glmnet package using Lasso, ridge regression and elastic net).

3. Dimension reduction (principal components analysis, singular value decomposition).

Applications across modern data science.
