Webinar Black Swans and Bayesian Networks

Webinar: Black Swans & Bayesian Networks

Context

Even though we may not have any actual observations from a domain, we can still speculate and hypothesize about possible rare events, i.e., we can reason on theoretical grounds as to what could possibly go wrong.

The objective of this webinar is to present Bayesian networks as a framework to merge machine-learned knowledge from data with theoretical knowledge from domain experts to produce a joint probability distribution that includes common and rare events simultaneously.

The case study we present addresses some of the challenges of Modern Portfolio Theory and was inspired by Rebonato & Denev's book, Portfolio Management Under Stress (opens in a new tab).
