  1. 1. Accelerating Monte Carlo methods for Bayesian inference in dynamical models

    Författare :Johan Dahlin; Thomas B. Schön; Fredrik Lindsten; Richard Everitt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computational statistics; Monte Carlo; Markov chains; Particle filters; Machine learning; Bayesian optimisation; Approximate Bayesian Computations; Gaussian processes; Particle Metropolis-Hastings; Approximate inference; Pseudo-marginal methods;

    Sammanfattning : Making decisions and predictions from noisy observations are two important and challenging problems in many areas of society. Some examples of applications are recommendation systems for online shopping and streaming services, connecting genes with certain diseases and modelling climate change. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Optimisation of Clinical Trials using Bayesian Decision Theory

    Författare :Sebastian Jobjörnsson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; decision theory; drug regulation; ; Bayesian statistics; subgroup analysis; clinical trials; health economics; multiple testing; decision theory;

    Sammanfattning : A decision maker confronted with the task of designing a clinical trial has to consider a multitude of aspects. Large trials lead to more evidence,which in turn makes it less likely that harmful decisions are taken when deciding on future treatments for patients. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Prognostics and Health Management of Engineering Systems for Operation and Maintenance Optimisation

    Författare :Madhav Mishra; Matti Rantatalo; Kai Goebel; Kalevi Huhtala; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Prognostics and Health Management PHM ; Diagnostics; Prognostics; Bayesian; Hierarchical; L10; Prediction; Bearing; Li-ion battery; RUL; Particle filter; Model-based; Data-driven; Algorithms; Railway track geometry; Operation and Maintenance Engineering; Drift och underhållsteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Prognostics and health management (PHM) is an engineering discipline that aims to maintain system behaviour and function and ensure mission success, safety and effectiveness. Prognostics is defined as the estimation of remaining useful life. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On the Optimisation and Regulation of Clinical Trials

    Författare :Sebastian Jobjörnsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; decision theory; Bayesian statistics; optimal stopping.; clinical trials; subgroup analysis; drug regulation;

    Sammanfattning : The basic premise of this thesis is that Bayesian Decision Theory (BDT) can and should be used to solve clinical trial design problems. While the flexibility of the framework allows for accommodating a great variety of situations, it also requires an explicit consideration of the gains and costs associated with the trial. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Sequential Monte Carlo for inference in nonlinear state space models

    Författare :Johan Dahlin; Thomas Schön; Fredrik Lindsten; Adam M. Johansen; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Nonlinear state space models (SSMs) are a useful class of models to describe many different kinds of systems. Some examples of its applications are to model; the volatility in financial markets, the number of infected persons during an influenza epidemic and the annual number of major earthquakes around the world.
