In the video about Correlation, at 1:29 you said that 0 correlation means that they are independent.
This is not true for all the situations. Please fix it.
By the way awesome videos!! 😀 🙂
Thank you

Hi Harry,
To be perfectly precise, a correlation of 0, means that there is no linear dependence between the two variables! (they are linearly independent).
Surely, as you have suggested, if we are considering non-linear dependence, your statement is true!
