Introduction to Bayesian Analysis for Sensory & Consumer Scientists

Product code: J-BAYES-2019


  • 1 day face-to-face masterclass
  • Price includes all refreshments and lunch

In this one day course, we give you the understanding to the key concepts of these analysis methods, that need to be understood before a Bayesian study can be set-up. We give information on how to interpret and apply results of a Bayesian analysis to improve decision making ability and so maximising use of your data. Practicalities of taking this approach are also discussed. This course gives those unfamiliar with Bayesian methods the insight and confidence to decide whether Bayesian analysis could add something to their current data analysis methods.

Although the course is not software based, there are practical workshops to ensure the concepts are understood and the material remains engaging.

The workshop allows time to discuss typical statistics software packages used for Bayesian analysis and group discussions. At the end of the workshop, participants should have a good understanding of how Bayesian methods work and could be applied, in order that they can work with statisticians to ask the right questions and understand any outputs. (As specialist software is generally required and a thorough understanding of the statistical methods involved, this course does not teach how to carry out the analyses directly, although pointers are given.)

You will need a laptop to join in with the exercises in the workshop, or you can hire a machine for the day for an additional small fee.
