General Bayesian Updating and the Loss-Likelihood BootstrapSep 22 2017May 22 2018In this paper we revisit the weighted likelihood bootstrap, a method that generates samples from an approximate Bayesian posterior of a parametric model. We show that the same method can be derived, without approximation, under a Bayesian nonparametric ... More
Generalized Bayesian Updating and the Loss-Likelihood BootstrapSep 22 2017In this paper, we revisit the weighted likelihood bootstrap and show that it is well-motivated for Bayesian inference under misspecified models. We extend the underlying idea to a wider family of inferential problems. This allows us to calibrate an analogue ... More
Scalable Nonparametric Sampling from Multimodal Posteriors with the Posterior BootstrapFeb 08 2019Increasingly complex datasets pose a number of challenges for Bayesian inference. Conventional posterior sampling based on Markov chain Monte Carlo can be too computationally intensive, is serial in nature and mixes poorly between posterior modes. Further, ... More
Nonparametric learning from Bayesian models with randomized objective functionsJun 29 2018Nov 01 2018Bayesian learning is built on an assumption that the model space contains a true reflection of the data generating mechanism. This assumption is problematic, particularly in complex data environments. Here we present a Bayesian nonparametric approach ... More
On Estimating Many Means, Selection Bias, and the BootstrapNov 15 2013With recent advances in high throughput technology, researchers often find themselves running a large number of hypothesis tests (thousands+) and esti- mating a large number of effect-sizes.
