We are very happy to announce that following “Jumping Rivers: Bayesian Inference using Stan”, Michael Betancourt, a core developer of Stan, is running a series of 5 modules for principled statistical modelling with Stan. This module introduces Gaussian processes as a statistical modelling technique, motivating principled prior models that avoid pathological behaviour.
