CANCELLED: Computationally Efficient Bootstrap Sampling Using Markov Chains

Tuesday, August 30, 2022 - 11:00 to 11:30
Giorgio (Gio) Sgarbi, UBC Statistics MSc Student
Statistics Seminar
ESB 4192 / Zoom

To Join Via Zoom: To join this seminar virtually, please request Zoom connection details from headsec [at] stat.ubc.ca.

Abstract: The bootstrap is a popular tool in modern statistics; however, it relies on sub-optimal IID Monte Carlo for approximating the resampling distribution. In this presentation, I will show that perhaps surprisingly, a simple MCMC algorithm can outperform IID sampling in this context. We aim to keep the same valuable features in the original method while hoping to improve sampling efficiency.
