Enseignant(s) :

Dehaene Guillaume Philippe Ivan Joseph

Langue:

English

Summary

This course aims at giving a broad overview of Bayesian inference, highlighting how the basic Bayesian paradigm proceeds, and the various methods that can be used to deal with the computational issues that plague it. This course represents a 70-30 split of practice versus theory.

Content

Key results that will be presented during the class:

 

Exercise sessions will be focused on implementation of the methods presented during the class, and on practical aspects of Bayesian data analysis.

The evaluation consists of an oral presentation on a programming project carried out by the student during the semester.
