STROBE Tutorial: Dr. Javier Orjuela-Koop, ‘Bayesian Data Analysis: An Introduction’

This seminar provides a pedagogical introduction to Bayesian data analysis. We will begin by presenting Bayes’ theorem and the shift it represents in thinking about probabilities, allowing us to swap the concept of ‘randomness’ for that of ‘belief’. Then, we will work through selected problems in parameter estimation, discussing Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods and the computational advances that gave new life to Bayesian inference after 250 years of its original formulation.
