McLean Sloughter (Graduate Student Seminar)


University of Washington - Department of Statistics

MURI week continues this Friday. I'll be talking about probabilistic weather forecasting using Bayesian Model Averaging, an altogether different approach than the probabilistic forecasting method described by Tilmann in seminar earlier this week. I'll be discussing my work on forecasting of wind and rain, and looking at a modification of the EM algorithm for mixed continuous/discrete distributions. There will also be some discussion of current work on fitting mixtures of gammas, though we've not actually altogether come up with a way to do that yet, so that will be more of a "what we'd like to do" than "what we've done" section.
