â€œApproximate Bayesian Computation: treasure trove or trivial pursuit?â€
Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) has become a standard part of the statisticianâ€™s toolbox.
In this talk he will outline what ABC is about, how it arose, and what it can (and cannot) do.
He will illustrate the approach with a cancer evolution problem arising in the analysis of sequencing data.
