When: Thursday 3rd August 2017, 13:00-14:00.
Included in meeting:
This fortnight (3rd August) at 1pm room Y-801 Ace and Bulu will be presenting at our BRAG meeting. The topics are:
Report from Europe and Using ABCpy to estimate parameters in a queueing system
I’ll start by annoying everyone with photos from Europe. I will then briefly show some of the work I did with Ritabrata Dutta and Antonietta Mira at Università della Svizzera italiana in Switzerland. We used the python package they developed, ABCpy, to infer parameters in a complex queueing system.
PCA and the Factorial Methods: How I wrapped my head around them
This talk is a brief look at how I used a series of blog posts (starting with this one: https://drbulu.github.io/blog/factorial_methods_part1_overview/) to better understand how to use the PCA technique and what methods it was related to. My main motivation was to gather together the information that I needed to be able to properly apply and interpret these methods.
Next fortnight’s speakers will be Billi and Ziwen An.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Matt and Shovanur
