Hierarchical Partial Pooling
- 28 January 2023
Suppose you are tasked with estimating baseball batting skills for several players. One such performance metric is batting average. Since players play a different number of games and bat in different positions in the order, each player has a different number of at-bats. However, you want to estimate the skill of all players, including those with a relatively small number of batting opportunities.
Hierarchical Binomial Model: Rat Tumor Example
- 10 January 2023
This short tutorial demonstrates how to use PyMC to do inference for the rat tumour example found in chapter 5 of Bayesian Data Analysis 3rd Edition [Gelman et al., 2013]. Readers should already be familiar with the PyMC API.

- tutorial, intermediate
This tutorial shows an application of Bayesian Item Response Theory [Fox, 2010] to NBA basketball foul calls data using PyMC. Based on Austin Rochford’s blogpost NBA Foul Calls and Bayesian Item Response Theory.

GLM: Mini-batch ADVI on hierarchical regression model
- 23 September 2021
Unlike Gaussian mixture models, (hierarchical) regression models have independent variables. These variables affect the likelihood function, but are not random variables. When using mini-batch, we should take care of that.
Diagnosing Biased Inference with Divergences
- 02 February 2018
This notebook is a PyMC3 port of Michael Betancourt’s post on mc-stan. For detailed explanation of the underlying mechanism please check the original post, Diagnosing Biased Inference with Divergences and Betancourt’s excellent paper, A Conceptual Introduction to Hamiltonian Monte Carlo.
