Course Description

Learners can examine the concept of Bayesian learning and the different types of Bayesian models in this 12-video course. Discover how to implement Bayesian models and computations by using different approaches and PyMC for your machine learning solutions. Learners start by exploring critical features of and difficulties associated with Bayesian learning methods, and then take a look at defining the Bayesian model and classifying single-parameter, multiparameter, and hierarchical Bayesian models. Examine the features of probabilistic programming and learn to list the popular probabilistic programming languages. You will look at defining Bayesian models with PyMC and arbitrary deterministic function and generating posterior samples with PyMC models. Next, learners recall the fundamental activities involved in the PyMC Bayesian data analysis process, including model checking, evaluation, comparison, and model expansion. Delve into the computation methods of Bayesian, including numerical integration, distributional approximation, and direct simulation. Also, look at computing with Markov chain simulation, and the prominent algorithms that can be used to find posterior modes based on the distribution approximation. The concluding exercise focuses on Bayesian modeling with PyMC.
