Event description

Description

Bayesian data analysis is a powerful tool for inferential statistics and prediction, and this one-day course will get you up to speed with doing Bayesian data analysis using R or python. The goal of the course is for you to get an understanding of what Bayesian data analysis is and why it is useful. After the tutorial you should be able to run Bayesian analyses in R or python and will be setup to learn about more advanced Bayesian techniques. The target audience you with little or no knowledge of Bayesian statistics, but with basic knowledge of R and/or Python.

Part one of the tutorial will introduce Bayesian modelling from a simulation-based perspective. Part two will introduce three packages for doing Bayesian data analysis: Rstanarm, PyMC3 GLM, and Facebook's Prophet. Part three will introduce you to the popular and powerful Stan framework for building and running flexible Bayesian models in R and Python.

The course will be taught by Rasmus Bååth, a popular blogger and YouTuber on Bayesian methods, based at Lund University and King (makers of Candy Crush). Rasmus is particularly interested in making Bayes accessible to beginners and has experience through academic teaching, writing and creating online courses.

There is a reduced price for students and unwaged participants at GBP 125 including VAT -- email robert@bayescamp.com to get this or if you want an invoice prior to paying through your organisation.
