Nonparametric Deconvolution Models

April 9 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Flyer for Chaney seminarIn this talk, Dr. Allison J.B. Chaney will describe nonparametric deconvolution models (NDMs), a family of Bayesian nonparametric models for collections of data in which each observation is the average over the features from heterogeneous particles. For example, these types of data are found in elections, where we observe precinct-level vote tallies (observations) of individual citizens’ votes (particles) across each of the candidates or ballot measures (features), where each voter is part of a specific voter cohort or demographic (factor); similar structure exists in data collected from bulk RNA sequencing.
