Event description


This one-hour webinar is an introductory taster for Stan, the Bayesian data analysis software. Stan is free, open-source, and widely used and trusted in many different settings. It is a probabilistic programming language, which simply means that you can build up a model for your data, and the parameters that interest you, from simple building blocks. Stan has a superior algorithm to BUGS and JAGS in most situations: it is faster and is less fussy about starting values and prior distributions. There are Stan interfaces for many different data analysis platforms.

In this hour, you'll see Stan at work through R, Python, and from the command line. 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.
