Learning Bayesian Statistics

  • Publisher: Alexandre ANDORRA
  • Total Episodes: 41

Are you a researcher or data scientist / analyst / ninja? Do you want to learn Bayesian inference, stay up to date or simply want to understand what Bayesian inference is? Then this podcast is for you! You’ll hear from researchers and practitioners of all fields about how they use Bayesian statistics, and how in turn YOU can apply these methods in your modeling workflow. When I started learning Bayesian methods, I really wished there were a podcast out there that could introduce me to the methods, the projects and the people who make all that possible. So I created “Learning Bayesian Statistics”, where you’ll get to hear how Bayesian statistics are used to detect black matter in outer space, forecast elections or understand how diseases spread and can ultimately be stopped. But this show is not only about successes — it’s also about failures, because that’s how we learn best. So you’ll often hear the guests talking about what *didn’t* work in their projects, why, and how they overcame these challenges. Because, in the end, we’re all lifelong learners! My name is Alex Andorra by the way, and I live in Paris. By day, I’m a data scientist and modeler at the https://www.pymc-labs.io/ (PyMC Labs) consultancy. By night, I don’t (yet) fight crime, but I’m an open-source enthusiast and core contributor to the python packages https://docs.pymc.io/ (PyMC) and https://arviz-devs.github.io/arviz/ (ArviZ). I also love https://www.pollsposition.com/ (election forecasting) and, most importantly, Nutella. But I don’t like talking about it – I prefer eating it. So, whether you want to learn Bayesian statistics or hear about the latest libraries, books and applications, this podcast is for you — just subscribe!

Business Statistics – Undergraduate

  • Publisher: Dr. Richard Jerz
  • Total Episodes: 1

Note: Currently, my video server has changed and no longer supports my podcasting methodology. Sorry about this. I am working on a solution. This podcast once supported my “Business Statistics” course, which I am no longer teaching. I am keeping this podcast “alive” for those who are taking some form of business statistics course. However, you will notice that many of them begin with a welcome to Business Analytics, a course that I do currently teach.Business statistics topics are often a subset of business analytics topics, so don’t let the words “business analytics” discourage you. You might also find some of my Business Analytics podcasts. These videos are copyrighted. I do allow students to freely use them, hoping that students will learn. If you are an instructor wanting to use these, email me and make a request.casts are uncertain right now. Note: I do try to improve the episodes as often as I can, so you might want to re-download episodes occasionally.
