Workshop: Introduction to Bayesian Modeling Using Stan
February 10, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Instructor: Matt Espe
Date: February 10, 2017
Time: 12 – 1:30pm
This talk will explore Bayesian modeling using the probabilistic programming language Stan. We will
start with a crash course in Bayesian modeling, show when and why MCMC methods are needed, and then
will touch on the pros and cons of various different MCMC samplers with hands-on examples. The talk
will end with a demonstration of using Stan through multiple interfaces (R, command line, etc).
