  • The nuances and the tangled knots of what constitutes probability.
  • When probability can, and cannot, be derived from frequency data.
  • All Bayesian probability is conditional.
  • Is probability absolute?
  • Is probability real?

Wednesday 11th August 2021 12:00pm-12:30pm
Introduction to Bayesian Network Modelling!
Dr Sandra Johnson from the Queensland University of Technology

This session is aimed at a general audience, and no previous experience in modelling or statistics is necessary. We will give you a high level introduction to Bayesian networks (BNs), answering questions such as:

  • Why should I be interested to find out about BN modelling?
  • What is a BN anyway?
  • When is this a suitable modelling approach?

The "how" will not be covered in this session, but if you are interested in learning more, look out for the follow up webinar sessions.
