New R user community in Grenoble, France

Nine R user communities already exist in France and there is a much large number of R communities around the world. It was time for Grenoble to start its own! The goal of the R user group is to facilitate the identification of local useRs, to initiate contacts, and to organise experience and knowledge sharing sessions. […]

ABC in Banff

Hi all, Last week I attended a wonderful meeting on Approximate Bayesian Computation in Banff, which gathered a nice crowd of ABC users and enthusiasts, including lots of people outside of computational stats, whom I wouldn’t have met otherwise. Christian blogged about it there. My talk on Inference with Wasserstein distances is available as a video here (joint […]

momentify R package at BAYSM14

I presented an arxived paper of my postdoc at the big success Young Bayesian Conference in Vienna. The big picture of the talk is simple: there are situations in Bayesian nonparametrics where you don’t know how to sample from the posterior distribution, but you can only compute posterior expectations (so-called marginal methods). So e.g. you cannot provide credible intervals. […]

Joint Statistical Meeting 2013

Hey, In a few weeks (August 3-8) I’ll attend the Joint Statistical Meeting in Montréal, Canada. According to Wikipedia it’s been held every year since 1840 and now gathers more than 5,000 participants! I’ll talk in a session organized by Scott Schmidler, entitled Adaptive Monte Carlo Methods for Bayesian Computation; you can find the session […]

A glimps of Inverse Problems

Hi folks ! Last Tuesday a seminar on Bayesian procedure for inverse problems took place at CREST. We had time for two presentations of young researchers Bartek Knapik and Kolyan Ray. Both presentations deal with the problem of observing a noisy version of a linear transform of the parameter of interest where is a linear […]

Priors on probability measures

Hi, for the next GTB meeting at Crest, 3rd May, I will present Peter Orbanz‘ work on Projective limit random probabilities on Polish spaces. It will follow my previous presentation about Bayesian nonparametrics on the Dirichlet process. The article provides a means of constructing any arbitrary prior distribution on the set of probability measures by […]

Coming R meetings in Paris

If you live in Paris and are interested in R, there will be two meetings for you this week. First a Semin-R session, organized at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle on Tuesday 7 Feb (too bad, the Museum is closed on Tuesdays). Presentations will be about colors, phylogenies and maps, while I will speak about […]

BISP7 in Madrid

Hey there, I am currently attending Bayesian Inference in Stochastic Processes 7, hosted by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. I am going to talk (for a very short 15 minutes) about SMC^2 (arXiv link, google code link) on Saturday. Looking at the conference’s program, I am definitely hoping to interact on closely-related topics with the [...]
