Below are the topics of the class and some readings about each. (Some
readings are not yet set.)
The readings are at different levels: some are basic and some are
advanced. We chose them to provide fundamental and other interesting
material about the topics; the lectures will not necessarily cover or
follow all of this material.
In addition to these readings, we will also make available Blei
(2019), which is a book in preparation. The materials below are
covered in this book.
"Build, compute, critique, repeat: Data analysis with latent
variable models" (Blei, 2014)
