We're back to our discussion format so there will be no presentation this month.

Our topics will be:

1) Chapter 5 of "Bayesian Methods for Hackers" https://github.com/CamDavidsonPilon/Probabilistic-Programming-and-Bayesian-Methods-for-Hackers Please take a look at it. It's perfectly OK if you are just starting the book. Come with your questions and we will discuss them.

2) "Sorry ARIMA, but I’m Going Bayesian" https://multithreaded.stitchfix.com/blog/2016/04/21/forget-arima/ I haven't dug in to this post but this is a perfect chance to figure out what the author is trying to say. The code in the article is in R ... why not try to reimplement it in your favorite language.

Note the doors will be locked. Please try to arrive by 6:15 and reach me here or on twitter, @JulioBarros, if you have any questions or need to be let in. Thanks.
