Noted statistician Andrew Gelman will begin a series of lectures on Bayesian analysis tonight, and he’s opening them up to The Internet via g+ hangout (see this post from his blog). For the first lecture, he’ll be going through slides here for class1a and class1b. Lectures are once a week at 8:30am Friday mornings in Paris, which means Thursday nights 11:30pm-1:30am PST. He doesn’t want to post videos of the lectures online, so we have to watch the lectures in real time if we want to catch them.
If this sounds like fun to you, and you’d like to meet up for a late night Bayesian study party, send me an email (email@example.com). A couple of us might meet at my place (on E 24th Ave by University Park), and you are more than welcome to join. The more the merrier. I will have some beer, possibly also pizza and/or cookies.
