Bayesian Networks Study Group
Building on the success of the Bayes Study Group I ran two years ago, I have decided to create another study group this time focusing on explicit inference and analysis of Bayesian Networks which I believe are a neat tool for hypothesis testing.
Conduct & Logistics
Below, you will find a few key facts outlining how this Bayesian Network Study Group sessions are run. You will find that what we do is quite a lot (I would like to think it quite exhaustive, actually).
That being said, I realise that what I propose is quite a big-time commitment – both in per-week hours and for how long this study group is supposed to run.
- Tuesday 1500-1700 CEST (sessions end earlier if we are done earlier, of course)
- Weekly for 8 sessions
- We follow the material noted further down under Group Material
- We prepare ourselves by working through the material noted for each session the proposed schedule
- At the start of each session, either me or a volunteer quickly presents a summary of the preparation material. This does not mean a presenter should have mastered the material at all – simply be able to provide a red-thread through the contents and get a discussion going. We then go into questions/challenges concerning the material, practical examples, and personal implementations.
