Fergal Reid will be giving a talk this month. The location will be confirmed shortly, but most likely will be the Science Gallery from 6:30pm followed by a pub meetup in O'Neills at 8pm.
Title: Introduction to basic bayesian methods, from first principles, using Python.
Description: This talk will introduce the basic principles of bayesian statistics, starting off from scratch. We'll start by introducing the simple ideas behind the bayesian approach, and quickly develop these ideas to the point where they can be used to do simple AB-testing. Full Python code will be provided at every step, so that its easy for programmers to understand.
If the talk goes well, you'll come out with a good overview of the basic ideas of bayesian statistics. Depending on time and interest we might even see some code for more advanced ideas like MCMC methods.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
