Here’s a thought provoking video by Julia Galef  There’s a common criticism that people who claim to practice “Bayesian thinking” aren’t actually doing anything special — they’re just using a fancy term to make their opinions seem more objective than they really are. In this video I explain why that criticism is misguided.

Bayesian Data Science by Simulation Tutorial

Here’s an interesting session from the SciPy 2020 virtual conference. As a foundational tutorial in statistics and Bayesian inference, the intended audience is Pythonistas who are interested in gaining a foundational knowledge of probability theory and the basics of parameter estimation. Knowledge of `numpy`, `matplotlib`, and Python are prerequisites for this tutorial, in addition to […]

Mathematics of Dopamine

In this video, Siraj Raval explores how key reinforcement learning algorithms help explain how the human brain works, specifically through the lens of the neurotransmitter known as ‘dopamine’. These algorithms have been used to help train everything from autopilot systems for airplanes, to video game bots. TD-Learning, Rescorla-Wagner, Kalman Filters, and Bayesian Learning, all in one […]
