23 March ~ José Perusquía “Construction of Random Probability Measures through the Normalisation of Completely Random Measures”

Bayesian Nonparametrics is characterised by “big” parameter spaces and the construction of probability measures on them. For the specification of these (random) probability measures there are mainly two general procedures: through the specification of their law or through a direct construction. For this seminar I will present an approach based on the normalisation of completely random measures that provides a direct construction and that leads to intuitive posterior structures. ​
