What is a Monte Carlo Simulation? (Part 1)

By Zachariah Miller • January 30, 2018

One of the most powerful techniques in any data scientist's tool belt is the Monte Carlo Simulation. It's flexible and powerful since it can be applied to almost any situation if the problem can be stated probabilistically. However, Metis Sr. Data Scientist Zach Miller has found that for many, the concept of using Monte Carlo is obscured by a fundamental misunderstanding of what it is. To address that, he's put together a series of small projects demonstrating the power of Monte Carlo in a few different fields.
