Bayesian Networks And The Search For Causality
“I would rather discover a single causal law than be king of Persia” (Democritus, 460-370BC). Dr. Ricardo Silva from the Department of Statistical Science at UCL will give an introduction to Bayes rule, Bayesian networks and how these powerful techniques can be used to infer correlation and causation in data.
We're once again very lucky to be hosted at Lloyds Register in central London with the event co-sponsored by Bayes Server.
6:30pm for beer, food and chat
7:00pm 'Bayesian Networks And The Search For Causality'
8:00pm Q&A (and more beer)
