Mastering the prerequisite skills is very important in order to complete this course.
- Bayesian probability theory and bayesian inference
- Bayesian models and their analysis
- Computational methods, Markov-Chain Monte Carlo
After the course, the student can
- explain the central concepts in Bayesian statistics, and name steps of the Bayesian modeling process.
- recognize usages for common (i.e. those presented during the course) statistical models, and formulate the models in these situations.
- compare the most popular Bayesian simulation methods, and implement them.
- use analytic and simulation based methods for learning the parameters of a given model.
- estimate the fit of a model to data and compare models.
It is possible to take the course online except for the final project presentation which is arranged on campus.
- Lectures will be organized on Mondays at 14:15-16:00 (recording is available after the lecture).
- Exercise sessions (Otaniemi) will be held on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
