BayesDB

Is it possible to make statistical inference broadly accessible to non-statisticians without sacrificing mathematical rigor or inference quality? The default modeling assumptions that BayesDB makes are suitable for a broad class of problems, but statisticians can customize these assumptions when necessary.

They partnered with brewmaster Chuck Silva and began to develop the definitive West Coast style of beer, thus Green Flash’s West Coast IPA was born in 2002. It was received with open mugs by the craft beer community and launched their company into the innovative brewery they are today. READ MORE
