### That's like, so random! Monte Carlo for Data Science

1. 1. That’s like, so random! Monte Carlo for Data Science Corey Chivers, PhD @cjbayesian
2. 2. Drawing samples is cool and all, but what can I do with them?
3. 3. 1. Understand where obscure statistics come from
4. 4. 2. Make your own statistic!

6. 6. 3.Avoid having to do hard (and sometimes impossible) math
7. 7. 4. Understand what inferences you can make with your data
8. 8. 4. Propagate uncertainty in complex predictive models
9. 9. See next talk!
10. 10. 4. Run ‘what if’ scenarios
11. 11. What if we were to see a surge in patients in a given unit, how would this propagate to the rest of the hospital?
