Bayesian Modeling Workshop: Building Statistical Models, Understanding When To Use Bayesian Inference

About This Event

Bayesian inference is used a lot in sports analytics. This is a practical, hands-on workshop for people wanting to spend an hour working with data and iterating over statistical models. If you're interested in how to work with sports data, have already worked with a few models and want to understand how to interpret the results, or have questions about reparametrization for MCMC efficiency, please join! We'll estimate the parameters of a simple model using Bayesian and frequentist techniques, discuss the differences, then move on to a hierarchical model that requires Bayesian inference to fit.
