Bayesian Linear Regression Models with PyMC3

In this article we are going to introduce regression modelling in the Bayesian framework and carry out inference using the PyMC3 MCMC library. Read more...

Markov Chain Monte Carlo for Bayesian Inference - The Metropolis Algorithm

In previous discussions of Bayesian Inference we introduced Bayesian Statistics and considered how to infer a binomial proportion using the concept of conjugate priors. We discussed the fact that not all models can make use of conjugate priors and thus calculation of the posterior distribution would need to be approximated numerically. Read more...
