Become a Bayesian in 10 minutes: Stan and its use in R

November 16, 2016 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 pm

| Free

Rackham Building, Earl Lewis Room, 3rd Floor East

This workshop will provide a basic introduction to the probabilistic programming language Stan, specifically focusing on its usage via R.  A very brief overview of the Bayesian modeling approach will be provided as a starting point, followed by a description of the Stan language and the constituent parts of a Stan model.  Three package implementations available in R will then be demonstrated. While very little background knowledge is assumed, this is not an introduction to Bayesian inference nor an introduction to R, and it will actually take longer than ten minutes.
