Bayesian Data Analysis & Cognitive Modeling

The course introduces main ideas and tools of Bayesian data analysis. We will compare standard and Bayesian approaches to statistical inference. We will also look at Bayesian inference and model comparison for special-purpose cognitive models in order to demonstrate the general usefulness of a Bayesian approach to analyzing data.

Course notes

  1. What software to install
  2. What literature to read
  3. What the final project is all about
