Date / Time / Room Sponsor Type

Organizer: Robert E. McCulloch, University of Chicago
Chair: Nicholas Polson, University of Chicago
Floor Discussion 10:15 AM

Bayesian statistical approaches are particularly well suited to interactive, graphic representation. Ideally, the entire process of model/prior specification/elicitation, utility specification, and decision should be presented to the user in a comprehensible way that elucidates the impact of the various modeling assumptions. In high-dimensional models this is not always easily done. Sophisticated graphics and interactive user interfaces can help. Modern computing continues to advance rapidly. Papers in this session represent the ongoing effort to use computing technology to graphically represent Bayesian Analysis.
