Reproducible Research with End-to-end Machine Inference Using Deep Learning and Bayesian Statistics

The conventional statistical inference based on hypothesis testing and p-value is fundamentally flawed. The general practice of data analysis involves too many post hoc decisions makings based on p-value, which unavoidably violates the... continue reading

Unifying generative models and exact likelihood-free inference with conditional bijections

Recent work in density estimation uses a bijection $f : X \to Z$ (e.g. an invertible flow or autoregressive model) and a tractable density $p(z)$ (e.g. [1]... continue reading

A sustainable URL shortener for science

Emerging infrastructures for scientific research such as Zenodo and ORCiD offer persistent identification of data, software, publications, people, and institutions. Publications, however, often contain... continue reading

Make computer-aided research more verifiable

A central problem with modern computer-aided research is that research based on long computations becomes difficult to verify. It is thus unclear how and why such should be trusted. The most widely discussed aspect of this problem is the... continue reading
