Our next visitor (Jan 18th -20th, 2010) will be the distinguished John Skilling (Maximum Entropy Data Consultants Ltd., and formerly of the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge).

He will be giving three seminars during his visit entitled: Foundations of Probabilistic Reasoning, Nested Sampling, and Metrics, Curvature, and Priors. Keep an eye on our Events page for further info.

John is Scientific Director of MEDC. He did his Ph.D. (on cosmic rays) in the Department of Physics at Cambridge University, and went on to become a Lecturer in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, and a Fellow of St Johns College. In the late 1970s, another radio astronomer, Steve Gull, introduced him to the power of the Maximum Entropy Method. John wrote what was to become the first MemSys kernel system, and helped lay the Bayesian foundations for MEM. In 1981 he and Steve founded MEDC to exploit opportunities to apply MEM in other fields. - [more details]

Infinite factorization of multiple non-parametric views by Simon Rogers , Arto Klami , Janne Sinkkonen, Mark Girolami and Samuel Kaski is now available from Springer Journal of Machine Learning.

Abstract: Combined analysis of multiple data sources has increasing application interest, in particular for distinguishing shared and source-specific aspects. We extend this rationale to the generative and non-parametric clustering setting by introducing a novel non-parametric hierarchical mixture model... - [more details]
