Physics and Baysian Statistics

This week in the Renyi Hour session, the BGSE students got out of their comfortable zone. We had a talk with Johannes Bergstron, a Postdoctoral researcher at Universitat de Barcelona,  about physics and the implications of Bayesian statistics in this filed. As a person totally new to the field of physics I can say that it was quite an adventure and a challenge to fully grasp all the concepts, but as a “hopefully-to-be” data scientist I was happy to see that there are more and more fields open to frequentist but also baysian point of view. If you want to have a taste of what the talk was about, here you can find the slides.
