Bio: Dr. Jyotishka Datta is an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at Virginia Tech. Prior to this, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Arkansas Fayetteville from 2016-2020. He received his Ph.D. in Statistics from Purdue University in 2014 and worked as an NSF postdoctoral fellow at Duke University and SAMSI (Statistics and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute) from 2014-16.
Topic: Selection and Shrinkage for Continuous and Discrete Data
Abstract of the Webinar:

Sparse signal recovery remains an important challenge in large scale data analysis and both Bayesian and frequentist literature have undergone an explosive development in the past in both theory an methodology. The purpose of this talk is to briefly review and discuss these developments. In the first half of this talk, I will survey the extant literature and connections with Bayesian models will be highlighted at various points. In the second half, I will discuss a few unexplored aspects of their behavior and cover several recent developments. I will offer some insights into these problems and point out future directions.

Topic: How Decision Tree Helps Improving Data Visualization
Abstract of the Webinar:

Data visualization is a popular tool for exploratory data analysis. However, finding patterns in data using only visualizations is often very subjective, thus inconsistent and unreliable. This presentation will demonstrate how a Decision Tree can help us identify some of the data patterns quickly.

Dr. Sayar Karmakar

Bio: Faculty in Statistics Department, University of Florida.

PhD in Statistics at University of Chicago. B.Stat and M.Stat at Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

His main research interests lie in multiple time series, time-varying models, econometrics and neural networks.

Topic: How to learn dependence of data independently?

Abstract of the Webinar: 

Contrary to what we learn in all basic statistics classes real data rarely show independence. This dependence can be of different forms: time dependence, space dependence, network dependence etc. In this talk I'll briefly introduce a few basic time series models that help identify some of the actual real life series. Some applications towards spatial dependence and network dependence will be mentioned. Finally I'll conclude with some econometric model that are usually used to model indices such as cryptocurrencies or stock indices.
