Probability and Statistics for Interviews

So, you want to be a data scientist, but how fast can you answer this question?

If I have two decks of cards each with half blue cards and half green cards, should I draw from the deck of 10 or 100 to maximize the probability of drawing two green cards in a row in the first two draws?

Did it take you longer than you would like? No worries, CDSS has you covered! Technical interviews for data science positions are notorious for throwing hardball statistics questions at you to test not only your math skills, but also your ability to think under pressure. :scream: At Probability and Statistics for Interviews, CDSS will walk you through a repeatable process of figuring out the right answer for these kinds of questions. Whether you’re a math wizard or are taking your first probability class, come to our event for an hour of fun and collaborative problem solving!

When : Thursday, November 9 at 8:00pm to 9:00pm
