Understanding Uncertainty in Machine Learning Algorithms

Botond Szabo obtained an ERC starting grant to assess the fundamental properties of statistical and machine learning methods widely used when deadling with large quantities of complex data, as in medical imaging, autonomous cars, or in dating the Big Bang

Connected Risks in a Connected World

Bocconi Professor Simone Padoan develops novel tools in extreme value theory that allow, for exemple, to jointly study the shocks in the exchange rates of multiple currencies 

Botond Szabo on the Annals of Statistics Editorial Board

The Bocconi Associate Professor was named Associate Editor of the journal published by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.

New ERC Projects in Statistics and Cryptography at BIDSA

Online seminar
Second Edition of Junior Bayes Beyond the Borders (JB^3)

The 2021 edition of Junior Bayes Beyond the Borders (JB^3) is an online seminar series jointly organized by the BayesLab at Bocconi University and j-ISBA, the junior section of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA). This year the series will feature talks by the winners of the Blackwell-Rosenbluth Award by j-ISBA.

Tommaso Rigon Awarded for His PhD Dissertation

Tommaso Rigon, Bocconi PhD in Statistics alumnus, received the Savage Award 2020 in Theory & Methods for his PhD dissertation, Finite-dimensional nonparametric priors: Theory and applications.

The Math of Stem Cells

Triggered by a challenging biological problem, Hugo Lavenant, Assistant Professor at Department of Decision Sciences and BIDSA Affiliate, has developed innovative mathematical models for stem cell differentiation.

Igor Pruenster President of International Society for Bayesian Analysis

Founded in 1992, ISBA approaches its 30th anniversary. Over these years, it has promoted the development and application of Bayesian statistics. This approach to modeling and prediction is based on the celebrated theorem by Thomas Bayes, where available knowledge about the parameters in a probabilistic model is updated with the information contained in the data.

Daniele Durante Awarded by the Italian Statistical Society
The Assistant Professor has been awarded for the first edition of the prize assigned to early-career scholars, under the age of 40, for the contributions to the Statistical Sciences.
