Statistics Seminars: Nonparametric Predictive Inference for Bernoulli quantities: some examples

Presented by Frank Coolen,

15 May 2007 14:15 in CM107

About 10 years ago (see reference below), I presented a Nonparametric Predictive Inferential approach for Bernoulli random quantities, using lower and upper probabilities for future observations. In this talk, I will present examples of these lower and upper probabilities applied to three different situations: (1) multiple comparisons of proportions data; (2) reliability of systems; (3) size and composition of juries.

(1) and (2) are joint work with Pauline Coolen-Schrijner, (3) is joint work with Brett Houlding and Steven Parkinson (as a Nuffield Undergraduate Research project last summer).
