### Title: Towards computationally efficient spatial statistics

Location: Room V-157 in building VR-II on the UI campus

Time: Thursday January 23rd 2014, at 12:00 to 13:00.

Abstract: Spatial statistics is hard! The combination of large datasets and complicated models leads to a large number of computational and modelling challenges. In this talk, I will outline a framework for reducing this complexity through a combination of approximate models and approximate inference.
