Nested $\hat R$: Assessing Convergence for Markov chain Monte Carlo when using many short chains

google-research/google-research 25 Oct 2021

Furthermore we use $\mathfrak n \hat R$ to construct a warmup scheme with an adaptive length, allowing users to avoid running their MCMC algorithms longer than necessary.

A large-scale analysis of racial disparities in police stops across the United States

rfordatascience/tidytuesday 18 Jun 2017

We find that black drivers are stopped more often than white drivers relative to their share of the driving-age population, but that Hispanic drivers are stopped less often than whites.

Applications

HyperTools: A Python toolbox for visualizing and manipulating high-dimensional data

ContextLab/hypertools 28 Jan 2017

Just as the position of an object moving through space can be visualized as a 3D trajectory, HyperTools uses dimensionality reduction algorithms to create similar 2D and 3D trajectories for time series of high-dimensional observations.

Computing Extremely Accurate Quantiles Using t-Digests

tdunning/t-digest 11 Feb 2019

We present on-line algorithms for computing approximations of rank-based statistics that give high accuracy, particularly near the tails of a distribution, with very small sketches.

Estimating the number of infections and the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions on COVID-19 in European countries: technical description update

ImperialCollegeLondon/covid19model 23 Apr 2020

Our model estimates these changes by calculating backwards from temporal data on observed to estimate the number of infections and rate of transmission that occurred several weeks prior, allowing for a probabilistic time lag between infection and death.
