What do you learn in the Bayesian statistics course?
Bayes in Action is a short and effective one-day training that helps you to master the basics of Bayesian statistics.
The goal is to demonstrate professional data analysis. All topics are explained with examples, but with as little mathematics as possible. The course is at MSc – PhD level.
Moreover, there is ample time to answer your questions and for an extensive substantive discussion.
The course location is:
1055 RX AMSTERDAM

Parking: you can almost always park in this neighborhood. Of course, against payment.
The course Bayes in Action can also be given as an in-company course.

Dr. Romke Bontekoe
is your trainer. He has learned Bayesian statistics in practice. Simply by applying Bayes to challenges where standard methods did not work. But where his gut feeling was that there had to be a solution.
is now 60+ years and regards it is time to transfer his knowledge and experience to the younger generation. He holds a PhD in astronomy (1988) from the University of Groningen.
