Welcome to your first CIS 2033 class! We’ll get to know each other, talk about
what to expect from the course, and briefly discuss administrative matters. We’ll
then jump straight into the course material.

Two features make this run of the course different from the previous versions:

- All programming assignments will be done in
`python`

(no need to worry if
you have not programmed in python before: you'll pick it up as we go along).
- After the midterm, a significant portion of this course will be devoted to
Bayesian statistics and some of its applications, and there will be a hands-on project
based on this material.

Here is a link to the previous version (Fall ‘16) of the course.

Lecture slides, links to useful resources, homework and project assignments
and other course related material will be posted here after each lecture.

Let’s have a great semester!
