2 workshops in applied mathematics

location Newspeak House | 6 PM-8:30 PM Tuesday 24 September 2019 (BST)

Come and help beta test 2 short workshops in Bayesian stats and Epidemic modelling

Workshop 1: Intro to Bayesian Statistics (50 mins)

The first half of this session will focus on the base rate fallacy, building intuitions of how it affects probabilities. In the second half we'll compare Bayesian and frequentist methods of inference and consider the advantages/disadvantages of each.

Workshop 2: Can Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) stop the AIDs epidemic? (50 mins)

We'll read a paper that makes some exciting claims about the possibility of ending the global AIDs epidemic. With a small amount of contextual knowledge, we'll look at the paper with a critical reviewer's eye to see what we make of its methods and claims.
