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 years have seen numerous advances in approximate inference methods, which have enabled Bayesian inference in increasingly challenging scenarios involving complex probabilistic models and large datasets.

On the webinar, selected young statisticians will present their recent works on the topic.

When & Where:

  • Wednesday, June 15th, 7:00 PT / 10:00 EST / 16:00 CET
  • Online, via Zoom. The registration form is available here.



The webinar is part of YoungStatS project of the Young Statisticians Europe initiative (FENStatS) supported by the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS).
