September 12, 2022

After three years of research and extensive brainstorming, Tathagata Basu defended his thesis entitled “High dimensional statistical modelling under limited information” on 15th December 2020. Would you like to find out more about Tatha’s research? Head over to the latest post on the SIPTA blog, where Tatha gives an overview of his thesis.

Imprecise-Probabilistic Foundations of Statistics & Data Science taught by Ryan Martin at North Carolina State University this Fall

August 17, 2022

This Fall 2022 semester (August 23rd through early December), Professor Ryan Martin will be teaching an advanced special topics course for Statistics PhD students at North Carolina State University entitled Imprecise-Probabilistic Foundations of Statistics & Data Science. The lectures will be recorded and made publicly available so, in principle, anyone who is interested can – and is welcome to – follow along or even participate in a non-credit-earning capacity. The course website has some information about the course plan and will be updated regularly; this is also where the lecture videos and other relevant materials will be posted. Please feel free to contact Professor Martin if you have questions.

Blog post on imprecise probabilities and quantum mechanics

April 26, 2022

Curious about the link between imprecise probabilities and quantum mechanics? Then you might enjoy SIPTA’s latest blog post on the topic, by Alessio Benavoli. In it, he takes us along on his research journey with Alessandro Facchini and Marco Zaffalon, in which they set out to derive the main axioms of Quantum mechanics using the gambling (desirability) foundation of probability theory (à la de Finetti or Williams-Walley).

SIPTA is on twitter now

April 15, 2022

Our beloved society now has a Twitter account: @SIPTAtweets. Just like our mailing list, the aim of this twitter feed is to rapidly disseminate information related to imprecise probabilities and SIPTA. Follow us, and we’ll keep you posted.

Are you tweeting about things related to imprecise probabilities yourself? Mention @SIPTAtweets in your tweet, and perhaps we’ll share it with the rest of the imprecise probabilities community.

Our thanks goes out to Ullrika Sahlin, who offered to manage the account. For questions related to our Twitter account, you can mail us at twitter@sipta.org.
