Thomas Wiecki of Quantopian on ‘Minding the Gap’ Between Statistics and Machine Learning at ODSC Europe 2018

  • It’s important for data scientists to understand the so-called “gap” between statistics and machine learning, and how there actually is a lot of commonality between the two; it’s just a matter of how you look at things.
  • PyMC3 is a very useful probabilistic programming framework for Python.
  • There are a number of methods, on both the machine learning and statistics side, to bridge the gap.
