StanCon 2018 Highlights

This year we had the privilege of sponsoring StanCon. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to actually attend the conference. Rather than let our ticket go to waste, we ran a small competition, which Ignacio Martinez won with his very cool (but in alpha stage) R package. Highlights from StanCon 2018 During my econ PhD I learned a lot about frequentist statistics. Alas, my training of Bayesian statistics was limited. Three years ago, I joined @MathPolResearch and started delving into this whole new world.

Competition: StanCon 2018 ticket

The prize How do I enter? FAQ Today we are happy to announce our Stan contest. Something we feel very strongly at Jumping Rivers is giving back to the community. We have benefited immensely from hard work by numerous people, so when possible, we try to give something back. This year we’re sponsoring StanCon 2018. If you don’t know, Stan is freedom-respecting, open-source software for facilitating statistical inference at the frontiers of applied statistics.

Official StanCon Sponsor

Stan is freedom-respecting, open-source software for facilitating statistical inference at the frontiers of applied statistics. Or to put it another way, it makes Bayesian inference fast and (a bit) easier. StanCon is the premier conference for all things Stan related and this year it will take place at the Asilomar Conference Grounds, a National Historic Landmark on the Monterey Peninsula right on the beach. RStan and other interfaces One of the great features about Stan is that you can use Stan via R (or Python or …).
