Feel free to join in on learning something about the words you're using though.

Um, your assumption is wrong. I rarely use frequentist approaches, I use methods in the domains I mentioned.

Needless to say, your prior information is weakly informative at best

Bayesian Machine Learning! Awesome. What books do you like to use as references? We could use all the people we can get in the machine learning thread. You can buzz word all you want in there. :P

You are probably still using Gibbs samplers lol. Haven't even learned about NUTS or Stan I'm guessing. Where you get your degree brah a cracker jack box?

Playing with you - would love to, but exams. Maybe after ACAS. BDA3 and ESL are probably what I reach for most often. Have some books on narrower topics like Bayesian survival analysis and Gaussian processes.

This is why I'm dreading going through this mathematical statistics sequence in my M.S. program.

It's all going to be a waste of time, learning about sufficiency and ancillarity, when no one cares about those.

Heard Gelman speak late last week, was an absolute blast. I don't really associate BDA3 with machine learning and I don't really associate ESL with a Bayesian perspective. There are definitely some books that better combine the two.

Claws are out! This statistical battle can only be settled by a... MODEL OFF!

Yea I did not say Bayesian Machine Learning, I kept them separate. There is a lot I would like to read including books I already own. I am aware of the Barber book, I'll take your recommendations if you have any, not that I know when I could ever get to them. Thx!
