Event description


This one-hour webinar is an introductory taster for the Bayesian data analysis software BUGS and JAGS. These are both free, open-source packages, widely used and trusted in many different settings. They are probabilistic programming languages, which simply means that you can build up a model for your data, and the parameters that interest you, from simple building blocks. They both use the Gibbs sampler algorithm to carry out estimation and inference, and have almost identical languages, which is whay they are bundled together here.

In this hour, you'll see how they both work through R and Python, as well as the Windows standalone interface WinBUGS. You'll see a few classic models, such as logistic regression, being written and run from scratch. There will be an opportunity for you to try out the code too, if you have the software loaded and tested ahead of time, and time for Q&A with Robert.
