Some Irresistible Integrals, Computed Using Statistical Concepts

Updated on Dec 12, 2018. An error was fixed when g(x) is not equal to x, and a new section "Generalization" was added. A link to a large collections of intriguing integrals was added at the bottom, in the "Related Problems" section.

Below are a few integrals that you won't find in textbooks. Solving them is a good exercise for college students with some advanced calculus training. We provide the solution, as well as a general framework to compute many similar integrals. Maybe…

Becoming a Billionaire Data Scientist vs Struggling to Get a $100k Job - What is the difference?

Do the usual (attending data camps if you don't have any experience), and you will go nowhere due to competition doing the exact same thing as you. Do the unusual, you will go nowhere either in terms of landing a job, as nobody understands what you do. However, the big difference is that in the latter case, you can compete with employers who won't hire you, and you can eat their lunch. That is what Uber, AirBnB, PayPal, Google, Zillow (predicting home values) and many more did, all of them…
