Uncertainty Quantification and the Marginal MDP Model

16 Jun 2022  ·  Blake Moya, Stephen G. Walker ·

The paper presents a new perspective on the mixture of Dirichlet process model which allows the recovery of full and correct uncertainty quantification associated with the full model, even after having integrated out the random distribution function. The implication is that we can run a simple Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm and subsequently return the original uncertainty which was removed from the integration. This also has the benefit of avoiding more complicated algorithms which do not perform the integration step. Numerous illustrations are presented.
