Abstract

Bayesian inference has a long standing history in the world of statistics and this chapter aims to serve as an introduction to anyone who has not been formally introduced to the topic before. First, Bayesian inference is introduced using a simple and analytical example. Then, computational methods are introduced. Examples are provided with common HCI problems such as comparing two group rates based on a binary variable, numeric variable, as well as building a regression model.
