Data spaces/Modelli statistici is an integrated course aimed at presenting advanced methods of Statistics
and the mathematical foundations of Machine Learning with a unifying view.

Data spaces/Modelli statistici is an integrated course aimed at presenting advanced methods of Statistics
and the mathematical foundations of Machine Learning with a unifying view.

The contents of the course are based on the statistical frequentist and Bayesian concepts for data analysis and interpretation, with the addition of a few new ideas coming from Machine Learning.
The student will learn the mathematical and logical foundations of data analysis and will be educated to the critical use of specialized software. Through the analysis of a variety of case study, the student is expected to be able to perform the analysis of new data in several different application areas.

The students are supposed to know calculus and the basics of probability and statistics (equivalent to around 15 credit background).
Frequentist theory of estimation and testing will be assumed. Bayesian ideas will be introduced in the course.

Linear models (regression, ANOVA) with quantitative and qualitative predictors, transformations, model choice.
Gaussian responses and what to do when they are not.
Generalized linear models: responses other than gaussian (e.g. logistic, Poisson and Cox regression).
Linear and nonlinear mixed effect models.
Bayesian Statistics.
Bayesian Networks.

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

At the end of the course, a list of case studies seen in the course will be provided,
together with explanations, references and software.
During the oral exam each student will be assigned at random two case studies from the list,
which he/she will have to discuss thoroughly.
The student will comment on the specific aspects of the case study, on its methodological foundations and on the software used.
The student will have to be able to connect the specific details of the case studies to general principles and methodologies.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
