UDRC Themed Meeting on Scalable Signal Processing with Bayesian Graphical Models

Event Date: 

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 - 09:00

Location: 

Edinburgh

As part of the UDRC phase III, a first themed meeting on Scalable Signal Processing with Bayesian Graphical Models will be held in Edinburgh on Wednesday, 20th February. This event is intended for academic researchers, industrial partners and Dstl staff to learn about and discuss current trends in scalable Bayesian methods.
 
The program will consists of a series of talks covering Bayesian sensor fusion, Bayesian networks, approximate message passing and advanced Monte Carlo sampling techniques, followed by a networking session. We will also present a Dstl Challenge competition.
