Are you a researcher or data scientist / analyst / ninja? Do you want to learn Bayesian inference, stay up to date or simply want to understand what Bayesian inference is? Then this podcast is for you! You'll hear from researchers and practitioners of all fields about how they use Bayesian statistics, and how in turn YOU can apply these methods in your modeling workflow. When I started learning Bayesian methods, I really wished there were a podcast out there that could introduce me to the me ...

Proudly sponsored by PyMC Labs, the Bayesian Consultancy. Book a call, or get in touch! I have to confess something: I love challenges. And when you’re a podcaster, what’s a better challenge than dedicating an episode to… visualization? Impossible you say? Well, challenge accepted! Thankfully, I got the help of a visualization Avenger for this epis…
 
Proudly sponsored by PyMC Labs, the Bayesian Consultancy. Book a call, or get in touch! Folks, there are some new cool kids on the block. They are called PyMC, Aeppl, and Aesara, and it’s high time we give us a proper welcome! To do that, who better than one of the architects of the new PyMC 4.0 — Ricardo Vieira! In this episode, he’ll walk us thro…
 
Proudly sponsored by PyMC Labs, the Bayesian Consultancy. Book a call, or get in touch! I’m sure you’ve already heard of gravitational waves, because my listeners are the coolest and smartest ever ;) But did you know about gravity waves? That’s right, waves in the sky due to gravity — sounds awesome, right? Well, I’m pretty sure that Laura Mansfiel…
 
Proudly sponsored by PyMC Labs, the Bayesian Consultancy. Book a call, or get in touch! Inviting someone like Luciano Paz on a stats podcast is both a pleasure and a challenge — he does so many things brilliantly that you have too many questions to ask him… In this episode, I’ve chosen — not without difficulty — to focus on the applications of Baye…
 
Proudly sponsored by PyMC Labs, the Bayesian Consultancy. Book a call, or get in touch! We talk a lot about generative modeling on this podcast — at least since episode 6, with Michael Betancourt! And an area where this way of modeling is particularly useful is healthcare, as Maria Skoularidou will tell us in this episode. Maria is a final year PhD…
 
The big problems with classic hypothesis testing are well-known. And yet, a huge majority of statistical analyses are still conducted this way. Why is it? Why are things so hard to change? Can you even do (and should you do) hypothesis testing in the Bayesian framework? I guess if you wanted to name this episode in a very Marvelian way, it would be…
 
Why do we, humans, communicate? And how? And isn’t that a problem that to study communication we have to… communicate? Did you ever ask yourself that? Because J.P. de Ruiter did — and does everyday. But he’s got good reasons: JP is a cognitive scientist whose primary research focus is on the cognitive foundations of human communication. He aims to …
 
In large-scale one-off civil infrastructure, decision-making under uncertainty is part of the job, that’s just how it is. But, civil engineers don't get the luxury of building 10^6 versions of the bridge, offshore wind turbine or aeronautical structure to consider a relative frequency interpretation! And as you’ll hear, challenges don’t stop there:…
 
You know when you have friends who wrote a book and pressure you to come on your podcast? That’s super annoying, right? Well that’s not what happened with Ravin Kumar, Osvaldo Martin and Junpeng Lao — I was the one who suggested doing a special episode about their new book, Bayesian Modeling and Computation in Python. And since they cannot say no t…
 
No, no, don't leave! You did not click on the wrong button. You are indeed on Alex Andorra’s podcast. The podcast that took the Bayesian world by a storm: “Learning Bayesian Statistics”, and that Barack Obama deemed “the best podcast in the whole galaxy” – or maybe Alex said that, I don’t remember. Alex made us discover new methods, new ideas, and …
 
Did you know there is a relationship between the size of firetrucks and the amount of damage down to a flat during a fire? The bigger the truck sent to put out the fire, the bigger the damages tend to be. The solution is simple: just send smaller firetrucks! Wait, that doesn’t sound right, does it? Our brain is a huge causal machine, so it can inst…
 
What’s the common point between fiction, fake news, illusions and meditation? They can all be studied with Bayesian statistics, of course! In this mind-bending episode, Dominique Makowski will for sure expand your horizon. Trained as a clinical neuropsychologist, he is currently working as a postdoc at the Clinical Brain Lab in Singapore, in which …
 
Let’s be honest: evolution is awesome! I started reading Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of Evolution, by Jonathan Losos, and I’m utterly fascinated. So I’m thrilled to welcome Florian Hartig on the show. Florian is a professor of Theoretical Ecology at the University of Regensburg, Germany. His research concentrates on theory, c…
