    • Bayesian Computing with INLA: A Review 

      Rue, Håvard; Riebler, Andrea Ingeborg; Sørbye, Sigrunn Holbek; Illian, Janine B.; Simpson, Daniel Peter; Lindgren, Finn Kristian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The key operation in Bayesian inference is to compute high-dimensional integrals. An old approximate technique is the Laplace method or approximation, which dates back to Pierre-Simon Laplace (1774). This simple idea ...

    • Bayesian multiscale analysis of images modeled as Gaussian Markov random fields 

      Thon, Kevin; Rue, Håvard; Skrøvseth, Stein Olav; Godtliebsen, Fred (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      A Bayesian multiscale technique for detection of statistically significant features in noisy images is proposed. The prior is defined as a stationary intrinsic Gaussian Markov random field on a toroidal graph, which enables ...

      Nordahl, Thor Mikkel (Master thesis, 2016)
      Modeller i statistisk læring, spesielt Nevrale Nettverk, har blitt anvendt med stor suksess på en rekke problemer i Kunstig Intelligens. Denne oppgaven beskriver og demonstrerer TensorFlow, som er en softwarepakke laget ...
    • Changepoint Models 

      Ramsnes, Kristine Behné (Master thesis, 2009)
      In this thesis we study recursion methods for making Bayesian inference on a class of multiple changepoint models, introduced in Fearnhead(2006). We present and implement recursion algorithms, and we evaluate how parameter ...
    • Computationally efficient Bayesian approximation of fractional Gaussian noise using AR1 processes 

      Myrvoll-Nilsen, Eirik (Master thesis, 2016)
      The goal of this thesis is to explore a way of performing efficient Bayesian inference of fractional Gaussian noise series using the R-INLA framework. Finding the MLE of the Hurst exponent and the innovation variance of ...
    • Constructing Priors that Penalize the Complexity of Gaussian Random Fields 

      Fuglstad, Geir-Arne; Simpson, Daniel; Lindgren, Finn; Rue, Håvard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Priors are important for achieving proper posteriors with physically meaningful covariance structures for Gaussian random fields (GRFs) since the likelihood typically only provides limited information about the covariance ...
    • Deep Learning with emphasis on extracting information from text data 

      Bjormyr, Tobias Liland (Master thesis, 2016)
      In this thesis the Natural Language Processing (NLP) problems of predicting the negative or positive sentiment of a movie review (sentiment analysis) and Automated Essay Grading (AES) were analyzed. The data set used for ...
    • Dynamic High Frequency Trading Models 

      Andersen, Espen Teie (Master thesis, 2009)
      This thesis considers constructing high-frequency quantitative trading models. The work is a continuation of my project thesis (spring 2009) and Birgitte Ringstad Vartdal's master thesis (2000). We build our trading model ...
    • Estimating tukey depth using incremental quantile estimators 

      Hammer, Hugo Lewi; Yazidi, Anis; Rue, Håvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Measures of distance or how data points are positioned relative to each other are fundamental in pattern recognition. The concept of depth measures how deep an arbitrary point is positioned in a dataset, and is an interesting ...
