CANCELLED: Time-to-Event Analytics: Probabilistic Programming with R and Stan

  • Workshop

This workshop is a follow-up to the presentation delivered by Noah Schellenberg and Andrew Segar at FooCafe in January 2020.

Time-to-Event (TtE) Analytics is an especially important concept when performing survival analysis. The unique aspect of TtE Analytics is the use of the suspensions or right-censored data. We will review key messages from the talk in January and together work through the examples and exercises in R and Stan. There will be time for questions and discussions at the end of the workshop session. 

The workshop is aiming the users with an intermediate level of R proficiency. Basic familiarity with Bayesian methods and probabilistic modelling is encouraged, but not strictly required.
