Getting Started with Bayesian Data Analysis in R

Getting Started with Bayesian Data Analysis in R

Are you interested in learning more about Bayesian data analysis but not sure where to start? This workshop is for you! In this applied, hands-on workshop, we introduce the fundamental ideas of Bayesian statistics while comparing and contrasting them to traditional statistical methods. For example, what is the Bayesian “equivalent” to a 2-sample t-test? How is it different? Why do it? How do we do it? Using R and a few selected packages, we’ll get you started running basic Bayesian data analyses and hopefully lay a foundation for you to go further and learn more. Prerequisites: basic experience using R, or successful completion of our Intro to R workshop. A basic understanding of probability distributions would be helpful as well.
