YS Webinar: Recent Advances in Approximate Bayesian Inference

event date: 2022-06-15The twelfth “One World webinar” organized by YoungStatS will take place on June 15th, 2022.

In approximate Bayesian computation, the likelihood function is intractable and needs to be 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.
