Nonparametric inference based on statistical depth
2022-10-03
Nonparametric inference based on statistical depth Monday, October 17th, 7:00 PT / 10:00 ET / 16:00 CET The notion of center of an object, be it a set of observations, a physical object or a random variable, is difficult to define. This motivated the development of general ways to measure centrality…

Theory and Methods for Inference in Multi-armed Bandit Problems
2022-04-19
Theory and Methods for Inference in Multi-armed Bandit Problems Multi-armed bandit (MAB) algorithms have been argued for decades as useful to conduct adaptively-randomized experiments. By skewing the allocation of the arms towards the more efficient or informative ones, they have the potential to…

Recent Advances in Approximate Bayesian Inference
2022-02-08
Recent Advances in Approximate Bayesian Inference In approximate Bayesian computation, likelihood function is intractable and needs to be itself estimated using forward simulations of the statistical model (Beaumont et al., 2002; Marin et al., 2012; Sisson et al., 2019; Martin et al., 2020). Recent…
