Statistical Learning and Bayesian Nonparametrics

STA641

Nonparametric Bayesian models and methods for complex data analyses with non-linearity adjustment, flexible borrowing of information, local uncertainty quantification and interaction discovery. Focuses on computationally and theoretically efficient nonparametric regression techniques based on advanced Gaussian process models, with motivating applications in causal inference and big data genomics. Includes several illustrative examples with R codes. Basic coverage of asymptotic theory and MCMC and greedy algorithms. Prerequisite: Statistics 531, 532, 523L
