Bayesian Modeling with Stan

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop will briefly cover the intuition of Bayesian inference and then introduce the Stan computer language, which uses Bayesian inference to estimate the unknown parameters of a model. The Stan language is free and open-source and can be interfaced from other free and open-source languages for data analysis such as R, Python, and Julia. Workshop participants will build incrementally more realistic models for success at a task, specifically success at putting in golf, and learn how to evaluate competing models in a Bayesian fashion.
