Bayes Theorem: A theorem in probability theory named for Thomas Bayes (1702-1761). In epidemiology, it is used to obtain the probability of disease in a group of people with some characteristic on the basis of the overall rate of that disease and of the likelihood of that characteristic in healthy and diseased individuals. The most familiar application is in clinical decision analysis where it is used for estimating the probability of a particular diagnosis given the appearance of some symptoms or test result.Mathematical Concepts: Numeric or quantitative entities, descriptions, properties, relationships, operations, and events.Algorithms: A procedure consisting of a sequence of algebraic formulas and/or logical steps to calculate or determine a given task.Mathematics: The deductive study of shape, quantity, and dependence.

Bayesian inference on biopolymer models. (1/6254)

MOTIVATION: Most existing bioinformatics methods are limited to making point estimates of one variable, e.g. the optimal alignment, with fixed input values for all other variables, e.g. gap penalties and scoring matrices. While the requirement to specify parameters remains one of the more vexing issues in bioinformatics, it is a reflection of a larger issue: the need to broaden the view on statistical inference in bioinformatics. RESULTS: The assignment of probabilities for all possible values of all unknown variables in a problem in the form of a posterior distribution is the goal of Bayesian inference. Here we show how this goal can be achieved for most bioinformatics methods that use dynamic programming. Specifically, a tutorial style description of a Bayesian inference procedure for segmentation of a sequence based on the heterogeneity in its composition is given. In addition, full Bayesian inference algorithms for sequence alignment are described. AVAILABILITY: Software and a set of transparencies for a tutorial describing these ideas are available at http://www.wadsworth.org/res&res/bioinfo/  (+info)

Genetic determination of individual birth weight and its association with sow productivity traits using Bayesian analyses. (2/6254)

Genetic association between individual birth weight (IBW) and litter birth weight (LBW) was analyzed on records of 14,950 individual pigs born alive between 1988 and 1994 at the pig breeding farm of the University of Kiel. Dams were from three purebred lines (German Landrace, German Edelschwein, and Large White) and their crosses. Phenotypically, preweaning mortality of pigs decreased substantially from 40% for pigs with < or = 1 kg weight to less than 7% for pigs with > 1.6 kg. For these low to high birth weight categories, preweaning growth (d 21 of age) and early postweaning growth (weaning to 25 kg) increased by more than 28 and 8% per day, respectively. Bayesian analysis was performed based on direct-maternal effects models for IBW and multiple-trait direct effects models for number of pigs born in total (NOBT) and alive (NOBA) and LBW. Bayesian posterior means for direct and maternal heritability and litter proportion of variance in IBW were .09, .26, and .18, respectively. After adjustment for NOBT, these changed to .08, .22, and .09, respectively. Adjustment for NOBT reduced the direct and maternal genetic correlation from -.41 to -.22. For these direct-maternal correlations, the 95% highest posterior density intervals were -.75 to -.07, and -.58 to .17 before and after adjustment for NOBT. Adjustment for NOBT was found to be necessary to obtain unbiased estimates of genetic effects for IBW. The relationship between IBW and NOBT, and thus the adjustment, was linear with a decrease in IBW of 44 g per additionally born pig. For litter traits, direct heritabilities were .10, .08, and .08 for NOBT, NOBA, and LBW, respectively. After adjustment of LBW for NOBA the heritability changed to .43. Expected variance components for LBW derived from estimates of IBW revealed that genetic and environmental covariances between full-sibs and variation in litter size resulted in the large deviation of maternal heritability for IBW and its equivalent estimate for LBW. These covariances among full-sibs could not be estimated if only LBW were recorded. Therefore, selection for increased IBW is recommended, with the opportunity to improve both direct and maternal genetic effects of birth weight of pigs and, thus, their vitality and pre- and postnatal growth.  (+info)

Bayesian mapping of multiple quantitative trait loci from incomplete outbred offspring data. (3/6254)

A general fine-scale Bayesian quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping method for outcrossing species is presented. It is suitable for an analysis of complete and incomplete data from experimental designs of F2 families or backcrosses. The amount of genotyping of parents and grandparents is optional, as well as the assumption that the QTL alleles in the crossed lines are fixed. Grandparental origin indicators are used, but without forgetting the original genotype or allelic origin information. The method treats the number of QTL in the analyzed chromosome as a random variable and allows some QTL effects from other chromosomes to be taken into account in a composite interval mapping manner. A block-update of ordered genotypes (haplotypes) of the whole family is sampled once in each marker locus during every round of the Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithm used in the numerical estimation. As a byproduct, the method gives the posterior distributions for linkage phases in the family and therefore it can also be used as a haplotyping algorithm. The Bayesian method is tested and compared with two frequentist methods using simulated data sets, considering two different parental crosses and three different levels of available parental information. The method is implemented as a software package and is freely available under the name Multimapper/outbred at URL http://www.rni.helsinki.fi/mjs/.  (+info)

The validation of interviews for estimating morbidity. (4/6254)

Health interview surveys have been widely used to measure morbidity in developing countries, particularly for infectious diseases. Structured questionnaires using algorithms which derive sign/symptom-based diagnoses seem to be the most reliable but there have been few studies to validate them. The purpose of validation is to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of brief algorithms (combinations of signs/symptoms) which can then be used for the rapid assessment of community health problems. Validation requires a comparison with an external standard such as physician or serological diagnoses. There are several potential pitfalls in assessing validity, such as selection bias, differences in populations and the pattern of diseases in study populations compared to the community. Validation studies conducted in the community may overcome bias caused by case selection. Health centre derived estimates can be adjusted and applied to the community with caution. Further study is needed to validate algorithms for important diseases in different cultural settings. Community-based studies need to be conducted, and the utility of derived algorithms for tracking disease frequency explored further.  (+info)

Bayesian analysis of birth weight and litter size in Baluchi sheep using Gibbs sampling. (5/6254)

Variance and covariance components for birth weight (BWT), as a lamb trait, and litter size measured on ewes in the first, second, and third parities (LS1 through LS3) were estimated using a Bayesian application of the Gibbs sampler. Data came from Baluchi sheep born between 1966 and 1989 at the Abbasabad sheep breeding station, located northeast of Mashhad, Iran. There were 10,406 records of BWT recorded for all ewe lambs and for ram lambs that later became sires or maternal grandsires. All lambs that later became dams had records of LS1 through LS3. Separate bivariate analyses were done for each combination of BWT and one of the three variables LS1 through LS3. The Gibbs sampler with data augmentation was used to draw samples from the marginal posterior distribution for sire, maternal grandsire, and residual variances and the covariance between the sire and maternal grandsire for BWT, variances for the sire and residual variances for the litter size traits, and the covariances between sire effects for different trait combinations, sire and maternal grandsire effects for different combinations of BWT and LS1 through LS3, and the residual covariations between traits. Although most of the densities of estimates were slightly skewed, they seemed to fit the normal distribution well, because the mean, mode, and median were similar. Direct and maternal heritabilities for BWT were relatively high with marginal posterior modes of .14 and .13, respectively. The average of the three direct-maternal genetic correlation estimates for BWT was low, .10, but had a high standard deviation. Heritability increased from LS1 to LS3 and was relatively high, .29 to .37. Direct genetic correlations between BWT and LS1 and between BWT and LS3 were negative, -.32 and -.43, respectively. Otherwise, the same correlation between BWT and LS2 was positive and low, .06. Genetic correlations between maternal effects for BWT and direct effects for LS1 through LS3 were all highly negative and consistent for all parities, circa -.75. Environmental correlations between BWT and LS1 through LS3 were relatively low and ranged from .18 to .29 and had high standard errors.  (+info)

Thermodynamics and kinetics of a folded-folded' transition at valine-9 of a GCN4-like leucine zipper. (6/6254)

Spin inversion transfer (SIT) NMR experiments are reported probing the thermodynamics and kinetics of interconversion of two folded forms of a GCN4-like leucine zipper near room temperature. The peptide is 13Calpha-labeled at position V9(a) and results are compared with prior findings for position L13(e). The SIT data are interpreted via a Bayesian analysis, yielding local values of T1a, T1b, kab, kba, and Keq as functions of temperature for the transition FaV9 right arrow over left arrow FbV9 between locally folded dimeric forms. Equilibrium constants, determined from relative spin counts at spin equilibrium, agree well with the ratios kab/kba from the dynamic SIT experiments. Thermodynamic and kinetic parameters are similar for V9(a) and L13(e), but not the same, confirming that the molecular conformational population is not two-state. The energetic parameters determined for both sites are examined, yielding conclusions that apply to both and are robust to uncertainties in the preexponential factor (kT/h) of the Eyring equation. These conclusions are 1) the activation free energy is substantial, requiring a sparsely populated transition state; 2) the transition state's enthalpy far exceeds that of either Fa or Fb; 3) the transition state's entropy far exceeds that of Fa, but is comparable to that of Fb; 4) "Arrhenius kinetics" characterize the temperature dependence of both kab and kba, indicating that the temperatures of slow interconversion are not below that of the glass transition. Any postulated free energy surface for these coiled coils must satisfy these constraints.  (+info)

Iterative reconstruction based on median root prior in quantification of myocardial blood flow and oxygen metabolism. (7/6254)

The aim of this study was to compare reproducibility and accuracy of two reconstruction methods in quantification of myocardial blood flow and oxygen metabolism with 15O-labeled tracers and PET. A new iterative Bayesian reconstruction method based on median root prior (MRP) was compared with filtered backprojection (FBP) reconstruction method, which is traditionally used for image reconstruction in PET studies. METHODS: Regional myocardial blood flow (rMBF), oxygen extraction fraction (rOEF) and myocardial metabolic rate of oxygen consumption (rMMRO2) were quantified from images reconstructed in 27 subjects using both MRP and FBP methods. For each subject, regions of interest (ROIs) were drawn on the lateral, anterior and septal regions on four planes. To test reproducibility, the ROI drawing procedure was repeated. By using two sets of ROIs, variability was evaluated from images reconstructed with the MRP and the FBP methods. RESULTS: Correlation coefficients of mean values of rMBF, rOEF and rMMRO2 were significantly higher in the images reconstructed with the MRP reconstruction method compared with the images reconstructed with the FBP method (rMBF: MRP r = 0.896 versus FBP r = 0.737, P < 0.001; rOEF: 0.915 versus 0.855, P < 0.001; rMMRO2: 0.954 versus 0.885, P < 0.001). Coefficient of variation for each parameter was significantly lower in MRP images than in FBP images (rMBF: MRP 23.5% +/- 11.3% versus FBP 30.1% +/- 14.7%, P < 0.001; rOEF: 21.0% +/- 11.1% versus 32.1% +/- 19.8%, P < 0.001; rMMRO2: 23.1% +/- 13.2% versus 30.3% +/- 19.1%, P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: The MRP reconstruction method provides higher reproducibility and lower variability in the quantitative myocardial parameters when compared with the FBP method. This study shows that the new MRP reconstruction method improves accuracy and stability of clinical quantification of myocardial blood flow and oxygen metabolism with 15O and PET.  (+info)

Taking account of between-patient variability when modeling decline in Alzheimer's disease. (8/6254)

The pattern of deterioration in patients with Alzheimer's disease is highly variable within a given population. With recent speculation that the apolipoprotein E allele may influence rate of decline and claims that certain drugs may slow the course of the disease, there is a compelling need for sound statistical methodology to address these questions. Current statistical methods for describing decline do not adequately take into account between-patient variability and possible floor and/or ceiling effects in the scale measuring decline, and they fail to allow for uncertainty in disease onset. In this paper, the authors analyze longitudinal Mini-Mental State Examination scores from two groups of Alzheimer's disease subjects from Palo Alto, California, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1981-1993 and 1986-1988, respectively. A Bayesian hierarchical model is introduced as an elegant means of simultaneously overcoming all of the difficulties referred to above.  (+info)

Frequentist statistics simply take the probability of a given event based on known test sets of a specific number. By contrast, Bayesian statistics take probability and allow it to express a "degree of belief" in an outcome, and establish reasoning based on hypotheses. Bayesian statistics was first pioneered in the 1770s by Thomas Bayes, who created the Bayes theorem that puts these ideas to work.. Another way to think about Bayesian statistics is that it utilizes "conditional probabilities" - it takes multiple factors into account. Think about the coin toss, where one can run large numbers of tests to determine that the frequentist statistical model is going to be close to 50 percent every time. However, Bayesian statistics might take conditional factors and apply them to that original frequentist statistic. What if one factored in whether or not it was raining when identifying the outcome of the coin toss? Might that affect the outcomes in terms of statistical results?. As a rule, ...
In simple terms, a Naive Bayes classifier assumes that the presence of a particular feature in a class is unrelated to the presence of any other feature. For example, a fruit may be considered to be an apple if it is red, round, and about 3 inches in diameter. Even if these features depend on each other or upon the existence of the other features, all of these properties independently contribute to the probability that this fruit is an apple and that is why it is known as Naive.. To understand the naive Bayes classifier we need to understand the Bayes theorem and to understand Bayes theorem we need to understand what is a conditional probability..

Classifying with Naive Bayes. One way to think about Bayes theorem is that it uses the data to update the prior information about , and returns the posterior. For chapters 2-3, it becomes very difficult to even conceive how to turn word problems into Matlab algorithms. Naive Bayes classifier is a conventional and very popular method for document classification problem. To understand the naive Bayes classifier we need to understand the Bayes theorem. Example 1: A jar contains black and white marbles. We start by ...
Bayesian inference of phylogeny uses a likelihood function to create a quantity called the posterior probability of trees using a model of evolution, based on some prior probabilities, producing the most likely phylogenetic tree for the given data. The Bayesian approach has become popular due to advances in computing speeds and the integration of Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms. Bayesian inference has a number of applications in molecular phylogenetics and systematics. Bayesian inference refers to a probabilistic method developed by Reverend Thomas Bayes based on Bayes theorem. Published posthumously in 1763 it was the first expression of inverse probability and the basis of Bayesian inference. Independently, unaware of Bayes work, Pierre-Simon Laplace developed Bayes theorem in 1774. Bayesian inference was widely used until 1900s when there was a shift to frequentist inference, mainly due to computational limitations. Based on Bayes theorem, the bayesian approach combines the ...
Naive Bayes is a simple technique for constructing classifiers: models that assign class labels to problem instances, represented as vectors of feature values, where the class labels are drawn from some finite set. There is not a single algorithm for training such classifiers, but a family of algorithms based on a common principle: all naive Bayes classifiers assume that the value of a particular feature is independent of the value of any other feature, given the class variable. For example, a fruit may be considered to be an apple if it is red, round, and about 10 cm in diameter. A naive Bayes classifier considers each of these features to contribute independently to the probability that this fruit is an apple, regardless of any possible correlations between the color, roundness, and diameter features. For some types of probability models, naive Bayes classifiers can be trained very efficiently in a supervised learning setting. In many practical applications, parameter estimation for naive ...

Medical Testing is a classic Bayes Theorem Problem. If you know 20% of students have chickenpox, and you test every student with a test that gives 70% true positive, 30% false negative when they have chickenpox and 75% true negative, 25% false positive when they dont. Then before doing the test, you can construct a probability ...
This program covers the important topic Bayes Theorem in Probability and Statistics. We begin by discussing what Bayes Theorem is and why it is important. Next, we solve several problems that involve the essential ideas of Bayes Theorem to give students practice with the material. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills learned in this section are committed to long-term memory. (TMW Media Group, USA)

The resulting proceedings provide a definitive, up-to-date overview encompassing a wide range of theoretical and applied research.
This section will establish the groundwork for Bayesian Statistics. Probability, Random Variables, Means, Variances, and the Bayes Theorem will all be discussed. Bayes Theorem Bayes theorem is associated with probability statements that relate conditional and marginal properties of two random events. These statements are often written in the form "the probability of A, given B" and denoted P(A,B) = P(B,A)*P(A)/P(B) where P(B) not equal to 0. P(A) is often known as the Prior Probability (or as the Marginal Probability) P(A,B) is known as the Posterior Probability (Conditional Probability) P(B,A) is the conditional probability of B given A (also known as the likelihood function) P(B) is the prior on B and acts as the normalizing constant. In the Bayesian framework, the posterior probability is equal to the prior belief on A times the likelihood function given by P(B,A). Media:Mario.jpg ...

Bayesian mixture models can be used to discriminate between the distributions of continuous test responses for different infection stages. These models are particularly useful in case of chronic infections with a long latent period, like Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) infection, where a perfect reference test does not exist. However, their discriminatory ability diminishes with increasing overlap of the distributions and with increasing number of latent infection stages to be discriminated. We provide a method that uses partially verified data, with known infection status for some individuals, in order to minimize this loss in the discriminatory power. The distribution of the continuous antibody response against MAP has been obtained for healthy, MAP-infected and MAP-infectious cows of different age groups. The overall power of the milk-ELISA to discriminate between healthy and MAP-infected cows was extremely poor but was high between healthy and MAP-infectious. The ...
In 1763, the Reverend Thomas Bayes published "An Essay towards solving a Problem in the Doctrine of Chances," containing what is now known as Bayes theorem. Bayes theorem remained relatively obscure for two centuries, but has since come to the forefront of statistical inference. Bayes simple but powerful theorem is notable for its subjectivist interpretation of probability, providing a mathematically rigorous framework for incorporating objective data into our otherwise subjective beliefs. Chris Everett will present a simple derivation of this important theorem and discuss some of its implications for everyday critical thinking and skepticism..

These different presentations are used to discuss innumeracy in health professionals, but provided me a variety of ways of presenting this example ...
Mixture models are commonly used in the statistical segmentation of images. For example, they can be used for the segmentation of structural medical images into different matter types, or of statistical parametric maps into activating and nonactivating brain regions in functional imaging. Spatial mixture models have been developed to augment histogram information with spatial regularization using Markov random fields (MRFs). In previous work, an approximate model was developed to allow adaptive determination of the parameter controlling the strength of spatial regularization. Inference was performed using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) sampling. However, this approach is prohibitively slow for large datasets. In this work, a more efficient inference approach is presented. This combines a variational Bayes approximation with a second-order Taylor expansion of the components of the posterior distribution, which would otherwise be intractable to Variational Bayes. This provides inference on fully adaptive

Commercial swine waste lagoons are regarded as a major reservoir of natural estrogens, which have the potential to produce adverse physiological effects on exposed aquatic organisms and wildlife. However, there remains limited understanding of the complex mechanisms of physical, chemical, and biological processes that govern the fate and transport of natural estrogens within an anaerobic swine lagoon. To improve lagoon management and ultimately help control the offsite transport of these compounds from swine operations, a probabilistic Bayesian network model was developed to assess natural estrogen fate and budget and then compared against data collected from a commercial swine field site. In general, the model was able to describe the estrogen fate and budget in both the slurry and sludge stores within the swine lagoon. Sensitivity analysis within the model, demonstrated that the estrogen input loading from the associated barn facility was the most important factor in controlling estrogen

In the situation where hypothesis H explains evidence E, Pr(E,H) basically becomes a measure of the hypothesiss explanatory power. Pr(H,E) is called the posterior probability of H. Pr(H) is the prior probability of H, and Pr(E) is the prior probability of the evidence (very roughly, a measure of how surprising it is that wed find the evidence). Prior probabilities are probabilities relative to background knowledge, e.g. Pr(E) is the likelihood that wed find evidence E relative to our background knowledge. Background knowledge is actually used throughout Bayes theorem however, so we could view the theorem this way where B is our background knowledge ...
|p|Dose-response (or ‘concentration-effect’) relationships commonly occur in biological and pharmacological systems and are well characterised by Hill curves. These curves are described by an equation with two parameters: the inhibitory concentration 50% (IC50); and the Hill coefficient. Typically just the ‘best fit’ parameter values are reported in the literature. Here we introduce a Python-based software tool, |em|PyHillFit|/em|, and describe the underlying Bayesian inference methods that it uses, to infer probability distributions for these parameters as well as the level of experimental observation noise. The tool also allows for hierarchical fitting, characterising the effect of inter-experiment variability. We demonstrate the use of the tool on a recently published dataset on multiple ion channel inhibition by multiple drug compounds. We compare the maximum likelihood, Bayesian and hierarchical Bayesian approaches. We then show how uncertainty in dose-response inputs can be
The proceedings of the Valencia International Meeting on Bayesian Statistics (held every four years) provide an overview of this important and highly topical area in theoretical and applied statistics.
As it so happens, I am finishing a PhD in the theory of probability. I may not be recognized as a world-class expert on the subject, but I may be able to contribute some useful thoughts here.. Anyway, I agree with you that the Bayesian approach cannot produce precise numerical values for the probability of historical events. So were not going to get a definite probability of Jesus existence that way. I do think, however, that the Bayesian framework can still be useful in a more qualitative way.. The basic Bayesian idea is that we have some set of mutually exclusive hypotheses H1, H2, and so on. We assign some initial ("prior") probability to each of those hypotheses. We then make some observation O. There will be some conditional probability P(O,H1), which is the probability of observing O given that H1 is true. Likewise for all the other hypotheses. These conditional probabilities are called the likelihoods. Bayes theorem then allows us to move to a final probability P(H1,O), which is the ...

Applied researchers interested in Bayesian statistics are increasingly attracted to R because of the ease of which one can code algorithms to sample from posterior distributions as well as the significant number of packages contributed to the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) that provide tools for Bayesian inference. This task view catalogs these tools. In this task view, we divide those packages into four groups based on the scope and focus of the packages. We first review R packages that provide Bayesian estimation tools for a wide range of models. We then discuss packages that address specific Bayesian models or specialized methods in Bayesian statistics. This is followed by a description of packages used for post-estimation analysis. Finally, we review packages that link R to other Bayesian sampling engines such as JAGS , OpenBUGS , WinBUGS , and Stan . Bayesian packages for general model fitting ...

Antipsychotic drug efficacy may have decreased over recent decades. The authors present a meta-analysis of all placebo-controlled trials in patients with acute exacerbations of schizophrenia, and they investigate which trial characteristics have changed over the years and which are moderators of drug-placebo efficacy differences.The search included multiple electronic databases. The outcomes were overall efficacy (primary outcome); responder and dropout rates; positive, negative, and depressive symptoms; quality of life; functioning; and major side effects. Potential moderators of efficacy were analyzed by meta-regression.The analysis included 167 double-blind randomized controlled trials with 28,102 mainly chronic participants. The standardized mean difference (SMD) for overall efficacy was 0.47 (95% credible interval 0.42, 0.51), but accounting for small-trial effects and publication bias reduced the SMD to 0.38. At least a minimal response occurred in 51% of the antipsychotic group versus 30% in
Function to examine publication bias. For both fixed- and random-effects models, estimates from no-pooling effects model are used as study-specific estimates. For random-effects models, the corresponding fixed-effects models are implemented at background to obtain pooled estimate. For example, if users call bmeta to run random-effects meta-analysis with normal prior, fixed-effects meta-analysis with normal prior are implemented at background to obtain pooled estimate for graphing. In the absence of publication and heterogeneity, the scatter resembles a symmetrical funnel and the triangle area formed by connecting the centred summary estimate with its 2.5% and 97.5% quantiles on either side includes about 95% of the studies if the fixed-effects model assumption holds (i.e. all the studies estimate the same effect).

Pig rearing continues to be an important source of food and serves for ritualuse among highlanders in Northern Thailand. The review of Trichinellosis outbreakreports from the past ten years (2003-2012) suggests that more than 90 percent of theoutbreaks have occurred in the highlands with several major foci scattered throughoutthe borderland provinces. To help us understand the transmission of the disease, theresearch applied an EcoHealth-One Health approach to develop a trandisciplinaryframework considering the interaction of highlanders with the pigs they grow andtheir environment as a single system. The research identified four subsystems toinvestigate Trichinellosis risk, including, animal husbandry, food chain, environment, and economic conditions. The research reported the results of a trandisciplinaryprocess involving the development of a Bayesian Belief Network model ofTrichinellosis risk and in-depth study of two highlander villages, including one thatexperienced an outbreak.

Regression analysis is a statistical method used to relate a variable of interest, typically y (the dependent variable), to a set of independent variables, usually, X1, X2,...,Xn . The goal is to build a model that assists statisticians in describing, controlling, and predicting the dependent variable based on the independent variable(s). There are many types of regression analysis: Simple and Multiple Linear Regression, Nonlinear Regression, and Bayesian Regression Analysis to name a few. Here we will explore simple and multiple linear regression and Bayesian linear regression. For years, the most widely used method of regression analysis has been the Frequentist methods, or simple and multiple regression. However, with the advancements of computers and computing tools such as WinBUGS, Bayesian methods have become more widely accepted. With the use of WinBUGS, we can utilize a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method called Gibbs Sampling to simplify the increasingly difficult calculations. Given that
The other two models assumed mixture distributions for the SNP effects reflecting the assumption that there is a large number of SNPs with zero or near zero effects and a second smaller set of SNPs with larger significant effects. A Bayes A/B "hybrid" method was used. This approximation to Bayes B [1] was used to keep computational and time demands reasonable. In this algorithm, after every k Bayes A iterations, Bayes B via the reverse jump algorithm is employed. The Reverse Jump algorithm [3] is run multiple times per SNP and then any SNP with a final state of zero in the current Bayes B iterations is set to zero for the subsequent k iterations of the Bayes A. This maintains the correct transitions between models of differing dimensionality. The prior distributions are identical to that of the original Bayes B using a mixture prior distribution for the SNP variance allowing a proportion, 1-π, to be set to zero. The other proportion π is sampled from the same mixture distribution as Bayes A. ...
The [i]Bayesian revolution in the sciences[/i] is fueled, not only by more and more cognitive scientists suddenly noticing that mental phenomena have Bayesian structure in them; not only by scientists in every field learning to judge their statistical methods by comparison with the Bayesian method; but also by the idea that [i]science itself is a special case of Bayes Theorem; experimental evidence is Bayesian evidence.[/i] The Bayesian revolutionaries hold that when you perform an experiment and get evidence that confirms or disconfirms your theory, this confirmation and disconfirmation is governed by the Bayesian rules. For example, you have to take into account, not only whether your theory predicts the phenomenon, but whether other possible explanations also predict the phenomenon. Previously, the most popular philosophy of science was probably Karl Poppers [i]falsificationism[/i] - this is the old philosophy that the Bayesian revolution is currently dethroning.

Although complex diseases and traits are thought to have multifactorial genetic basis, the common methods in genome-wide association analyses test each variant for association independent of the others. This computational simplification may lead to reduced power to identify variants with small effect sizes and requires correcting for multiple hypothesis tests with complex relationships. However, advances in computational methods and increase in computational resources are enabling the computation of models that adhere more closely to the theory of multifactorial inheritance. Here, a Bayesian variable selection and model averaging approach is formulated for searching for additive and dominant genetic effects. The approach considers simultaneously all available variants for inclusion as predictors in a linear genotype-phenotype mapping and averages over the uncertainty in the variable selection. This leads to naturally interpretable summary quantities on the significances of the variants and their ...
Logistic random effects models are a popular tool to analyze multilevel also called hierarchical data with a binary or ordinal outcome. Here, we aim to compare different statistical software implementations of these models. We used individual patient data from 8509 patients in 231 centers with moderate and severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) enrolled in eight Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) and three observational studies. We fitted logistic random effects regression models with the 5-point Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) as outcome, both dichotomized as well as ordinal, with center and/or trial as random effects, and as covariates age, motor score, pupil reactivity or trial. We then compared the implementations of frequentist and Bayesian methods to estimate the fixed and random effects. Frequentist approaches included R (lme4), Stata (GLLAMM), SAS (GLIMMIX and NLMIXED), MLwiN ([R]IGLS) and MIXOR, Bayesian approaches included WinBUGS, MLwiN (MCMC), R package MCMCglmm and SAS experimental procedure MCMC
In Part I titled Empirical Bayes Estimation, we discuss the estimation of a heteroscedastic multivariate normal mean in terms of the ensemble risk. We first derive the ensemble minimax properties of various estimators that shrink towards zero through the empirical Bayes method. We then generalize our results to the case where the variances are given as a common unknown but estimable chi-squared random variable scaled by different known factors. We further provide a class of ensemble minimax estimators that shrink towards the common mean. We also make comparison and show differences between results from the heteroscedastic case and those from the homoscedastic model.In Part II titled Causal Inference Analysis, we study the estimation of the causal effect of treatment on survival probability up to a given time point among those subjects who would comply with the assignment to both treatment and control when both administrative censoring and noncompliance occur.

I think Metacrock is right in that the claim "ECREE" with regards to the existence of God has little or nothing to do with Bayes Theorem. The reason for this is actually clear when you look at the examples in this thread, cocaine use and cancer. If you give a random US citizen a cocaine test, the low incidence of cocaine use means that youll get a lot of false positives. Cocaine use is an extraordinary claim, and you need a very accurate test (or several tests) in order to convincingly show cocaine use. If you go to a crackhouse, youll probably be able to tell pretty reliably who is high at the moment without any drug test. Similarly, any particular cancer diagnosis is a rare and extraordinary claim, and the tests have limited power. But if one test is positive, youre in a cancer crackhouse, and more testing will be much more reliable. Bottom line: You need to know the prior odds of an outcome to know the reliability of a test ...

In your first run, you wrote down the harmonic mean of the likelihoods sampled during the MCMC analysis. This value is an estimate of the (log of the) marginal likelihood (the denominator on the right side of Bayes Rule). It turns out that the harmonic mean estimate is always an overestimate of the quantity it is supposed to be estimating, and a variety of better ways of estimating marginal likelihoods have been invented recently. MrBayes provides one of these better methods, known as the stepping-stone method, which you have heard (will hear) about in lecture. Why estimate the marginal likelihood, you ask? The marginal likelihood turns out to be one of the primary ways to compare models in Bayesian statistics. In the Bayesian framework, the effects of the prior have to be included because model performance is affected by the choice of prior distributions: if you choose a prior that presents an opinion very different than the opinion provided by your data, the resulting tug-of-war between prior ...

IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence (ICTAI) In this paper, we present a nonparametric Bayesian approach towards one-hidden-layer feedforward neural net- works. Our approach is based on a random selection of the weights of the synapses between the input and the hidden layer neurons, and a Bayesian marginalization over the weights of the connections between the hidden layer neurons and the output neurons, giving rise to a kernel-based nonparametric Bayesian inference procedure for feedforward neural networks. Compared to existing approaches, our method presents a number of advan- tages, with the most significant being: (i) it offers a significant improvement in terms of the obtained generalization capabilities; (ii) being a nonparametric Bayesian learning approach, it entails inference instead of fitting to data, thus resolving the overfitting issues of non-Bayesian approaches; and (iii) it yields a full predictive posterior distribution, thus naturally providing a ...
The deviance information criterion (DIC) (Spiegelhalter et al., 2002) is a model assessment tool, and it is a Bayesian alternative to Akaikes information criterion (AIC) and the Bayesian information criterion (BIC, also known as the Schwarz criterion). The DIC uses the posterior densities, which means that it takes the prior information into account. The criterion can be applied to nonnested models and models that have non-iid data. Calculation of the DIC in MCMC is trivial-it does not require maximization over the parameter space, like the AIC and BIC. A smaller DIC indicates a better fit to the data set. Letting ...
Over the years, statistics (a branch of mathematics) has been used to calculate the probability of events. These statistical tests are based on data that has been collected to fulfill a specific purpose. In this paper, we will look at the probability of undertaking medical tests and decisions using Bayes theorem. Practically, not all medical tests are correct; this implies that medical tests are never 100% accurate.. For instance, assuming the result of a diagnostic procedure carried out to test for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) among smokers and non-smokers yields a 99% accuracy; this means that this result will only be correct 99% of the time. That is, there is always a 1% chance that this result is incorrect. This ability to correctly diagnose COPD in a person who has the condition defines the sensitivity while the ability to correctly diagnose lack of COPD in a person who doesnt have the condition defines the specificity. Now, let us closely look at what this means ...

This paper uses the analysis of a data set to examine a number of issues in Bayesian statistics and the application of MCMC methods. The data concern the selectivity of fishing nets and logistic regression is used to relate the size of a fish to the probability it will be retained or escape from a trawl net. Hierarchical models relate information from different trawls and posterior distributions are determined using MCMC. Centring data is shown to radically reduce autocorrelation in chains and Rao-Blackwellisation and chain-thinning are found to have little effect on parameter estimates. The results of four convergence diagnostics are compared and the sensitivity of the posterior distribution to the prior distribution is examined using a novel method. Nested models are fitted to the data and compared using intrinsic Bayes factors, pseudo-Bayes factors and credible intervals.. ...

Although the use of clustering methods has rapidly become one of the standard computational approaches in the literature of microarray gene expression data, little attention has been paid to uncertainty in the results obtained. Dirichlet process mixture (DPM) models provide a nonparametric Bayesian alternative to the bootstrap approach to modeling uncertainty in gene expression clustering. Most previously published applications of Bayesian model-based clustering methods have been to short time series data. In this paper, we present a case study of the application of nonparametric Bayesian clustering methods to the clustering of high-dimensional nontime series gene expression data using full Gaussian covariances. We use the probability that two genes belong to the same cluster in a DPM model as a measure of the similarity of these gene expression profiles. Conversely, this probability can be used to define a dissimilarity measure, which, for the purposes of visualization, can be input to one of ...
BACKGROUND: To further understand the implementation of hyperparameters re-estimation technique in Bayesian hierarchical model, we added two more prior assumptions over the weight in BayesPI, namely Laplace prior and Cauchy prior, by using the eviden
Believe it or not, this type of model does pop up every now and then in very serious statistical models, especially when dealing with data fusion, i.e., trying to combine inference from multiple sensors trying to make inference on a single event. If a sensor malfunctions, it can greatly bias the inference made when trying to combine the signals from multiple sources. You can make a model more robust to this issue by including a small probability that the sensor is just transmitting random values, independent of the actual event of interest. This has the result that if 90 sensors weakly indicate $A$ is true, but 1 sensor strongly indicates $B$ is true, we should still conclude that $A$ is true (i.e., the posterior probability that this one sensor misfired becomes very high when we realize it contradicts all the other sensors). If the failure distribution is independent of the parameter we want to make inference on, then if the posterior probability that it is a failure is high, the measures from ...
The transcriptional response to exogenously supplied nitric oxide in Saccharomyces cerevisiae was modeled using an integrated framework of Bayesian network learning and experimental feedback. A Bayesian network learning algorithm was used to generate network models of transcriptional output, followed by model verification and revision through experimentation. Using this framework, we generated a network model of the yeast transcriptional response to nitric oxide and a panel of other environmental signals. We discovered two environmental triggers, the diauxic shift and glucose repression, that affected the observed transcriptional profile. The computational method predicted the transcriptional control of yeast flavohemoglobin YHB1 by glucose repression, which was subsequently experimentally verified. A freely available software application, ExpressionNet, was developed to derive Bayesian network models from a combination of gene expression profile clusters, genetic information and experimental conditions

Downloadable! May 2001 In many studies in empirical industrial organization, the economist needs to decide between several non-nested models of industry equilibrium. In this paper, we develop a new approach to the model selection problem that can be used when the economist must decide between models with bid-rigging and models without bid-rigging. We elicit from industry experts a prior distribution over markups across auctions. This induces a prior distribution over structural cost parameters. We then use Bayes Theorem to compute posterior probabilities for several non-nested models of industry equilibrium. In many settings, we believe that it is useful to formally incorporate the a prior beliefs of industry experts into estimation, especially in small samples where asymptotic approximations may be unreliable. We apply our methodology to a data set of bidding by construction firms in the Midwest. The techniques we propose are not computationally demanding, use flexible functional forms and can be
The VariationalBayes function is a numerical approximation method for deterministically estimating the marginal posterior distributions, target distributions, in a Bayesian model with approximated distributions by minimizing the Kullback-Leibler Divergence (KLD) between the target and its approximation.
Differential equation based advection-diffusion models have been used in atmospheric science to mimic complex processes such as weather and climate. Differential and partial-differential equations (PDEs) have become popular in biological and ecological fields as well. In many cases, these models are considered in a strictly deterministic framework even though many sources of uncertainty in the process, the model, and the measurements may exist. Many deterministic PDE models are well-equiped to represent the theoretical spread of organisms, but have no mechanism to account for the various sources of uncertainty related to the inadequacies of the model as well as the process itself and our knowledge of it. However, the use of a PDE within the framework of a hierarchical Bayesian model can provide a useful link between scientifically based deterministic models and statistical models that accurately portray variability (Wikle 2003). Specifically we model the spread of Eurasian Collared-Dove (ECD; ...
The bacterial transcription factor LacI loops DNA by binding to two separate locations on the DNA simultaneously. Despite being one of the best-studied model systems for transcriptional regulation, the number and conformations of loop structures accessible to LacI remain unclear, though the importance of multiple coexisting loops has been implicated in interactions between LacI and other cellular regulators of gene expression. To probe this issue, we have developed a new analysis method for tethered particle motion, a versatile and commonly used in vitro single-molecule technique. Our method, vbTPM, performs variational Bayesian inference in hidden Markov models. It learns the number of distinct states (i.e. DNA-protein conformations) directly from tethered particle motion data with better resolution than existing methods, while easily correcting for common experimental artifacts. Studying short (roughly 100 bp) LacI-mediated loops, we provide evidence for three distinct loop structures, more ...
Outside of definitions and math (and even within much math) there are degrees of certainty, odds and likelihoods, ranges of numbers rather than specific answers, errors distributed across a zone, a universe of multiple possibilities..

RESUM: Setting prior distributions on model parameters is the act of characterising the nature of our uncertainty and has proven a critical issue in applied Bayesian statistics. Although the prior distribution should ideally encode the users uncertainty about the parameters, this level of knowledge transfer seems to be unattainable in practice and applied statisticians are forced to search for a "default" prior. Despite the development of objective priors, which are only available explicitly for a small number of highly restricted model classes, the applied statistician has few practical guidelines to follow when choosing the priors. An easy way out of this dilemma is to re-use prior choices of others, with an appropriate reference. In this talk, I will introduce a new concept for constructing prior distributions. We exploit the natural nested structure inherent to many model components, which defines the model component to be a flexible extension of a base model. Proper priors are defined to ...

Many minimax rules are also solutions to a related Bayes or extended Bayes problem. This paper investigates the inverse to the above result which is that many Bayes (or extended Bayes) rules are also solutions to a related minimax problem. This relationship has been given herein the name duality property for Bayes rules. Interpretations and applications of the duality property are discussed. For example the duality property provides an objective justification for Bayes rules in that the dual problem does not depend upon a prior distribution. This is important from a military viewpoint because some problems such as threat classification of enemy radars and final attack of enemy submarines can be formulated very easily within the Bayesian framework. Minimax rules for several problems are presented to illustrate the obvious application to solving minimax problems. Minimax rules are useful in making decisions on tactics in order to minimize the maximum expected loss for a limited war or
Learning is often understood as an organisms gradual acquisition of the association between a given sensory stimulus and the correct motor response. Mathematically, this corresponds to regressing a mapping between the set of observations and the set of actions. Recently, however, it has been shown both in cognitive and motor neuroscience that humans are not only able to learn particular stimulus-response mappings, but are also able to extract abstract structural invariants that facilitate generalization to novel tasks. Here we show how such structure learning can enhance facilitation in a sensorimotor association task performed by human subjects. Using regression and reinforcement learning models we show that the observed facilitation cannot be explained by these basic models of learning stimulus-response associations. We show, however, that the observed data can be explained by a hierarchical Bayesian model that performs structure learning. In line with previous results from cognitive tasks, ...

Within the past few decades, advances in imaging acquisition have given rise to a large number of in vivo techniques for brain mapping. This wide range of structural and functional imaging modalities provides a major source of information-rich data which may be used to non-invasively understand the human brain, and is a promising source of information for improved clinical diagnosis and treatment decision-making. Due to the complex spatial structure of neuroimaging data as well as the small number of samples typically collected in neuroimaging experiments, statistical methods which try to integrate different types of neuroimaging data are paramount. Our research is focused on the development of methods which allow for incorporation of prior information from multimodal neuroimaging sources to improve the reliability of inference in the presence of small to moderate sample sizes. First, we propose an integrative predictive modeling framework for neuroimaging data with spatial structure, such as ...
Despite improvements in access to birth facilities, neonatal mortality remains a critical health issue in many developing countries and causes are not fully understood. The Global Network Maternal Newborn Health Registry provides a rich source of data of neonatal mortality risk factors and outcomes to identify direct causes and higher-level determinants, however performing causal inference using observational data is difficult and remains an open problem in epidemiology.

Next-generation RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has been widely used to investigate alternative isoform regulations. Among them, alternative 3 splice site (SS) and 5 SS account for more than 30% of all alternative splicing (AS) events in higher eukaryotes. Recent studies have revealed that they play important roles in building complex organisms and have a critical impact on biological functions which could cause disease. Quite a few analytical methods have been developed to facilitate alternative 3 SS and 5 SS studies using RNA-seq data. However, these methods have various limitations and their performances may be further improved. Researchers from the New Jersey Institute of Technology have devloped an empirical Bayes change-point model to identify alternative 3 SS and 5 SS. Compared with previous methods, this approach has several unique merits. First, this model does not rely on annotation information. Instead, it provides a systematic framework to integrate various information when available, in
P(Sci-fi) is Evidence.. Now lets see why they are called like that.. Prior: Before we observe its a Sci-fi type, the object is completely unknown to us. Our goal is to find out the possibility that its a movie, we actually have the data prior(or before) our observation, which is the possibility that its a movie if its a completely unknown object: P(movie).. Posterior: After we observed its a Sci-fi type, we know something about the object. Because its post(or after) the observation, we call it posterior: P(movie,Sci-fi).. Evidence: Because weve already known its a Sci-fi type, what has happened is happened. We witness its appearance, so to us, its an evidence, and the chance we get this evidence is P(Sci-fi).. Likelihood: The dictionary meaning of this word is chance or probability that one thing will happen. Here it means when its a movie, what the chance will be if it is also a Sci-fi type. This term is very important in Machine Learning.. So why those probabilities are named like ...
AFAIK, those two are pretty unrelated.. Probability of H given E is simply the probability that the event H will happen when we already know that the event E happened.. On the other hand, when we do a statistical inference (that is, draw conclusions about population using a sample of it), we often want to know if something like the mean of a variable is zero.. We might do a test and come to the conclusion that its indeed zero. However, we are never 100% sure, and we might have told that its zero, but its not, whenever this happens we have a false alarm ...

If you have a question about this talk, please contact Richard Samworth.. In 1973, Ferguson proposed to perform nonparametric estimation in a Bayesian framework by defining a prior distribution on an infinite-dimensional parameter space (the set of probability measures over a given domain). When applied to a finite set of observations, only a finite number out of the infinitely many degrees of freedom is used to explain the data, which accounts for the term "nonparametric". The prior model is constructed as a stochastic process, with Dirichlet marginals and pathes in the set of probability measures over a separable metric space, that Ferguson called a "Dirichlet process". His estimation model has a conjugate form with a closed-form solution for the posterior parameters, which mimics the conjugate posteriors of the Dirichlet marginals under a multinomial sampling model. Measures drawn at random from the Dirichlet process are a.s. discrete.. I will review Fergusons construction and his ...
where the waiting times between each event are exponentially distributed with event-specific rate parameters. The magnitude of each event is drawn from an event-specific prior distribution. Parameters of the model are then estimated using a reversible-jump Markov chain Monte Carlo (rjMCMC) algorithm. We demonstrate via simulation that this method has substantial power to detect the number of mass-extinction events, provides unbiased estimates of the timing of mass-extinction events, while exhibiting an appropriate (i.e., below 5%) false discovery rate even in the case of background diversification rate variation. Finally, we provide an empirical application of this approach to conifers, which reveals that this group has experienced two major episodes of mass extinction. This new approach-the CPP on Mass Extinction Times (CoMET) model-provides an effective tool for identifying mass-extinction events from molecular phylogenies, even when the history of those groups includes more prosaic temporal ...

For purposes of this discussion Ill focus on EGDT which, by most, accounts, with the possible exceptions of early antibiotic therapy and source control, is the most robust of the sepsis bundle recommendations. Why did the authors give it such a low rating? I think they made two mistakes in the incorporation of prior evidence. The first is that while they looked at many clinical trials they ignored the more basic evidence that establishes the background and biologic rationale for EGDT, such as the extensive research cited in this paper. The second mistake is that the negative trials on hemodynamic optimization which they cited (see references 40-47) did not examine whether early hemodynamic optimization in the ER is beneficial, which was the premise of EGDT explicitly laid out in Rivers original paper. ...
1B) Joseph Smith could not have been making use of knowledge from his own environment to form the descriptions of covenants made by the Nephites because the concept of a covenant was not prominent at the time despite being associated with Judeo-Christian religious beliefs. Its a match for what Coe describe regarding the relationship of the Maya with their pantheon of gods in particular the Maize God. Never mind that Smith was most closely associated with Methodists at the time of writing the Book of Mormon. Never mind that this entry from John Wesleys journals sounds quite a bit like what was described in Mosiah 5 and 6: I mentioned to the congregation another means of increasing serious religion which had been frequently practiced by our forefathers, namely, the joining in a covenant to serve God with all our hearts and with all our soul.

The successional dynamics of microbial communities are influenced by the synergistic interactions of physical and biological factors. In our motivating data, ocean microbiome samples were collected from the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf, Monterey Bay at multiple time points and then 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequenced. We develop a Bayesian semiparametric regression model to investigate how microbial abundance and succession change with covarying physical and biological factors including algal bloom and domoic acid concentration level using 16S rRNA sequencing data. A generalized linear regression model is built using the Laplace prior, a sparse inducing prior, to improve estimation of covariate effects on mean abundances of microbial species represented by operational taxonomic units (OTUs). A nonparametric prior model is used to facilitate borrowing strength across OTUs, across samples and across time points. It flexibly estimates baseline mean abundances of OTUs and provides the basis for improved

The answer? Use Bayes Theorem to update your beliefs as new information arrives. As per Introduction to Bayesian Statistics, take the odds Before of each possibility, multiply by the likelihood of seeing what happened in each case, and you get the odds After. For instance, if you have three coins in your pocket - one normal, one double-headed, and one double-tailed - and you take a coin out at random and start tossing it, then every time it comes up "heads" the odds that its the two-headed coin get multiplied by two, and the odds that its the two-tailed coin get multiplied by zero.. Now consider the time difference Δ between dashboard clock and watch. Initially all values of Δ are equally likely. The first observation that HH:MM match is 100% sure to occur if the (unseen) value of seconds SS for clock and watch agree; its 50% likely if Δ = 30 seconds; its zero chance if Δ , 60 seconds. So the After belief in the time difference goes from being equiprobable to something like a triangle ...
wikilink,Bayesian probability}} {{arbitallink,https://arbital.com/p/bayes_rule_probability/,Bayes rule: Probability form}} Bayesian probability represents a level of certainty relating to a potential outcome or idea. This is in contrast to a [[Wikipedia:Frequentist_inference,frequentist]] probability that represents the frequency with which a particular outcome will occur over any number of trials. An [[Wikipedia:Event (probability theory),event]] with Bayesian probability of .6 (or 60%) should be interpreted as stating "With confidence 60%, this event contains the true outcome", whereas a frequentist interpretation would view it as stating "Over 100 trials, we should observe event X approximately 60 times." The difference is more apparent when discussing ideas.

The identification of copy number aberration in the human genome is an important area in cancer research. We develop a model for determining genomic copy numbers using high-density single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping microarrays. The method is based on a Bayesian spatial normal mixture model with an unknown number of components corresponding to true copy numbers. A reversible jump Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm is used to implement the model and perform posterior inference. The performance of the algorithm is examined on both simulated and real cancer data, and it is compared with the popular CNAG algorithm for copy number detection. We demonstrate that our Bayesian mixture model performs at least as well as the hidden Markov model based CNAG algorithm and in certain cases does better. One of the added advantages of our method is the flexibility of modeling normal cell contamination in tumor samples.
Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation has received considerable attention within the past decade as reportedly one of the most powerful techniques for the first passage probability estimation of dynamic systems. A very popular method in this direction capable of estimating probability of rare events with low computation cost is the subset simulation (SS). The idea of the method is to break a rare event into a sequence of more probable events which are easy to be estimated based on the conditional simulation techniques. Recently, two algorithms have been proposed in order to increase the efficiency of the method by modifying the conditional sampler. In this paper, applicability of the original SS is compared to the recently introduced modifications of the method on a wind turbine model. The model incorporates a PID pitch controller which aims at keeping the rotational speed of the wind turbine rotor equal to its nominal value. Finally Monte Carlo simulations are performed which allow assessment of ...
It is a computation process that uses random numbers to produce an outcome(s). Instead of having fixed inputs, probability distributions are assigned to some or all of the inputs. This will generate a probability distribution for the output after the simulation is run.. For example, a Monte Carlo algorithm can be used to estimate the value of π. The amount of area within a quarter-circle of radius 1 depends on the value of π. The probability that a randomly-chosen point will lie in that quarter-circle depends on the area of the circle. If points are placed randomly in a square with sides of length 1, the percentage of points that fall within a quarter-circle of radius 1 will depend on the value of π. A Monte Carlo algorithm would randomly place points in the square and use the percentage of points falling inside of the circle to estimate the value of π.This is an effective way for making approximations.. In modern communication systems, the quality of information exchange is determined by ...
Background Infant mortality can be an essential signal of people wellness within a nation. HA14-1 using Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation. Simulation-based Bayesian kriging was used HA14-1 to produce maps of all-cause and cause-specific mortality risk. Results Infant mortality increased significantly over the study period, mainly due to the effect of the HIV epidemic. There was a high burden of neonatal mortality (especially perinatal) with several hot spots observed in close proximity to health facilities. Significant risk factors for all-cause infant mortality were mothers death in first 12 months (most commonly due to HIV), death of earlier sibling and increasing quantity of household deaths. Becoming given birth to to a Mozambican mother posed a significant risk for infectious and parasitic deaths, particularly acute diarrhoea and malnutrition. Conclusions This study demonstrates the use of Bayesian geostatistical models in assessing risk factors and producing clean maps of infant ...
Blood samples collected from 503 suspect cases of African horse sickness (AHS) and another 503 from uninfected, unvaccinated South African horses, as well as 98 samples from horses from an AHS free country, were tested with an AHS virus (AHSV) specific duplex real-time reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) assay and virus isolation (VI). The diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of this AHSV RTqPCR assay and VI were estimated using a 2-test 2-population Bayesian latent class model which made no assumptions about the true infection status of the tested animals and allowed for the possibility of conditional dependence (correlation) in test results. Median diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of the AHSV RT-qPCR were 97.8% and 99.9%, respectively. Median diagnostic specificity of virus isolation was ,99% whereas the estimated diagnostic sensitivity was 44.2%. The AHSV RT-qPCR assay provides for rapid, high-throughput analysis of samples, and is both analytically and diagnostically ...
Causality has been a subject of study for a long time. Often causality is confused with correlation. Human intuition has evolved such that it has learned to identify causality through correlation. In this book, four main themes are considered and these are causality, correlation, artificial intelligence and decision making. A correlation machine is defined and built using multi-layer perceptron network, principal component analysis, Gaussian Mixture models, genetic algorithms, expectation maximization technique, simulated annealing and particle swarm optimization. Furthermore, a causal machine is defined and built using multi-layer perceptron, radial basis function, Bayesian statistics and Hybrid Monte Carlo methods. Both these machines are used to build a Granger non-linear causality model. In addition, the Neyman-Rubin, Pearl and Granger causal models are studied and are unified. The automatic relevance determination is also applied to extend Granger causality framework to the non-linear domain. The
en] Taenia solium cysticercosis is an endemic zoonosis in many developing countries. Serological tests are the most appropriate diagnostic tools to understand the transmission dynamics of the parasite, but the performances of these methods in such a setting are not known. A south Ecuadorian human population living in an endemic area was tested using three common serological tests. Because none of them is a gold standard, a Bayesian Latent Class analysis was used to estimate the test characteristics. Two definitions of a case were considered to differentiate between prevalence of current infection and prior exposure to the parasite. Differences between the performances of the same test in function of the definition of a case were observed. This study shows that test results and prior information should be interpreted carefully in a Bayesian analysis framework, particularly when the latter is based on clinical studies ...
This study presents a state-space modelling framework for the purposes of stock assessment. The stochastic population dynamics build on the notion of correlated survival and capture events among individuals. The correlation is thought to arise as a combination of schooling behaviour, a spatially patchy environment, and common but unobserved environmental factors affecting all the individuals. The population dynamics model isolates the key biological processes, so that they are not condensed into one parameter but are kept separate. This approach is chosen to aid the inclusion of biological knowledge from sources other than the assessment data at hand. The model can be tailored to each case by choosing appropriate models for the biological processes. Uncertainty about the model parameters and about the appropriate model structures is then described using prior distributions. Different combinations of, for example, age, size, phenotype, life stage, species, and spatial location can be used to ...

Bayes Theorem and AlzheimersBayes Theorem and Alzheimer's

One of the most distressing aspects of Alzheimers disease is the difficulty in determining whether mild memory problems are the beginning of an inevitable mental decline. Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a blood test that is a step toward giving people an answer two to six years in advance of the onset of the disease. The test identifies changes in a handful of proteins in blood plasma that cells use to convey messages to one another. The research team discovered a connection between shifts in the cells dialog and the changes in the brain accompanying Alzheimers. They found that the blood test could indicate who had Alzheimers with 90 percent agreement with clinical diagnoses, and could predict the onset of Alzheimers two to six years before symptoms appeared. "Just as a psychiatrist can conclude a lot of things by listening to the words of a patient, so by listening to different proteins we are measuring whether something is going wrong in the ...
