Attend, attend, attend! The training was well done allowing for both hands-on using BayesiaLab but also exploration of the Bayesian approach. Lionel was a great teacher – to have the brain behind the product guiding you was indeed amazing, no question went unanswered.
The Bayesia training session was one of the most valuable and thoughtful I have ever attended. Dr. Jouffe did an admirable job introducing and explaining Bayesian Belief Networks, an area of predictive modeling that is of rapidly increasing importance in many fields. The course adroitly mixed practical applications, case histories, and key concepts and theory, explaining the uses and remarkable power of these models. The approach was always informative and engaging, and included the best set of presentation materials I have encountered in a long time. This is a truly worthwhile course, and it also introduced a remarkable piece of analytical software. I speak as somebody who has given seminars and taught graduate courses for over twenty years; this session definitely deserves the highest praise
I enjoyed the training course in Chicago in April 2011. It was very interesting and very well organized. I learned a lot of new things and I got inspired for applications of BayesiaLab in my daily job. Finally the environment: very friendly and productive with the other attendees coming both from business and academic world, a really wonderful “melting pot”. A very exiting experience which I recommend to all people interested in Bayesian networks.
Bayesian Belief Networks is an advanced technique and Bayesia Lab makes such a complex technique easy to use on fingertips. Without any prior knowledge I had attended the Bayesia Lab Training in Chicago, April 2011 and found it very helpful & worth the money paid. The course structure / contents were well planned and by the end of the course I felt satisfied & had sense of mission accomplished. Dr. Jouffe has excellent teaching skills & in his training session there were several Q&A opportunities all addressed with a smiling face.
A must-take course for anyone looking to leverage advanced BBN techniques in virtually any domain.
I attended this training in Feb 2012 in Orlando. Dr. Jouffe did a great job explaining concepts of Bayesian Belief Networks. The hands-on sessions are extremely interesting. The BayesiaLab software has a lot of functions - you can do anything from correlation analysis to supervised learning algorithms! This tool can be for analysis in any area - ranging from market research to health care. I recommend this training to all people interested in Bayesian networks
Thank you Lionel and Stefan for the excellent training experience. The mix of Bayesian Network theory and hands-on applications with real data was just about perfect for me. The group of attendees was great too: from genetics, space communication and control, advertising and marketing, and risk assessment. The mix of disciplines made for great classroom questions and interesting lunch conversations.
Thanks for being great hosts and for providing industry with BayesiaLab. I'll recommend this course and BayesiaLab to all of my model building friends who need to make better predictions.
The BayesiaLab software is impressive in its sophistication and multi-faceted abilities as a decision support tool. I had been using it primarily as a modeling tool for deductive analysis. Taking this class opened my eyes to BayesiaLab's incredible data-mining abilities. If you are looking for something that will provide a totally new angle on business decision problems, this is it!
Lionel is a real expert on Bayesian Networks and he does a tremendous job of illustrating the uses of BayesiaLab for our company.
Overall, this training was outstanding. Lionel is a gifted teacher, and it helps that you are showcasing a first rate product. BayesiaLab is the most intuitive and easy-to-use machine-learning software available. It's a first-rate investment.
Fantastic training. Bayesia has compiled one of the most comprehensive training conferences I have ever had the pleasure to attend. If you are working with Bayes you need this class. If you are just thinking about using Bayes you need this class.
I attended the Bayesia Advanced training session in NY in Jan 2014 and enjoyed it a lot. It provides in depth though practical support to design and implement BBN analysis for a range of applications. Lionel Jouffe is particularly supportive and offers his highly valuable professional skills with a friendly smile. Absolutely recommended!
BayesiaLab makes big data digestible/accessible to the amateur inquirer.
The training was a truly mind-altering experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone interested in modeling with Bayesian Networks. Having Lionel personally deliver the course and answering any and all questions is of great business and educational value.
I'm next looking forward to the advanced course.
I would recommend the Introductory course to anyone interested in beginning their journey or furthering their knowledge in Bayesian Networks. I found Lionel Jouffe to be a true professional with great domain knowledge.
I enjoyed a very well-prepared course on especially interesting topics and impressive software given by an outstanding instructor. Thanks for the nice and lively training, Lionel.
There is no other tool on the market that can deal with the non-Linear nature of most real world problems and provide such a breath of analysis and visualization.
BayesiaLab gives the most comprehensive unified suite of data analytics tools I've seen. I've already replicated the findings of a scientific paper with a considerable longitudinal study in only a matter of hours using BayesiaLab. Whether you're a data scientist, researcher, or business professional, you will likely uncover and apply more value from your data using this framework.
For me it was a perfect training session and I use the program daily after that.
This course is quite intensive but very manageable if you have a background in statistics/machine learning/data science etc. Lionel (the instructor) knows the software inside-out and was able to answer all questions knowledgeably and without hesitation. I would absolutely recommend this course as a thorough and in-depth introduction to Bayesian Networks and the BayesiaLab package. The small class sizes also contributed to an enjoyable and engaging learning experience.
This is one of the best training I have ever had! Perfect topic that opens so many opportunities in any domain you could think of. Software is amazing and very intuitive. Presenter is extremely knowledgeable, patient and friendly. I would definitely consider taking this course again if I need to refresh my knowledge, but also will be extremely happy to take an advanced 3 day course. Look forward to start applying Bayesian network analysis at work and hope BayesiaLab will be an extremely important part of it. Thank you Lionel and Stefan for the wonderful course!
Very informative theoretical and hands on practical training by an intelligent and kind teacher for anyone who want to learn how to use this very powerful tool in their field. Coming from a non-analytical background I learned a lot. Thank you!
The introductory course was a real inspiration regarding the application of Bayesian Networks
BayesiaLab is the ideal tool for research in cognitive science
I have learned a lot during this training session in Paris. Lionel was outstanding by being able to answer all our concerns and questions, working with us individually and collectively, and also attract us to ask for more. I am looking forward to my next advanced training session.
I liked particularly the balance between theory and practice during the training, with Lionel's very accessible explanation of those complex concepts. And given the complexity, there is still a lot for me to learn and explore in this field.
I have been using BayesiaLab for about 2 years to develop pure knowledge-based models with success since these models prove to be very efficient in our operational business. However I never had the opportunity to use the tool in a Machine Learning mode. This training met fully my expectations, which were about understanding the major principles of using the tool for Machine Learning and being able to start using it for specific applications in my business. I have been impressed by the tool’s capabilities and I feel quite comfortable to start using it for Machine Learning. I strongly recommend this training to anyone who would like to make a start in Machine Learning with Bayesian techniques.
I felt that the Bayesia product was fascinating. BayesiaLab is like no other in its capacity to reveal otherwise hidden or non-intuitive aspects of data. If I could by some surgery integrate BayesiaLab into my normal cognitive function, I would do so immediately. Lionel is a virtuoso with both his own software and Bayesian analytical strategies. However, as he mentioned during the introduction, it requires - typically - a year to become competent with the program.
Great course for anyone who wants to understand what Bayesian is all about. Very practical and problem oriented, hands on training in creating and evaluating Bayesian belief networks. In a few days you're not an expert but you are trained enough so you can use it in practice. Lionel is a great instructor with perfect knowledge of the theory and software.
BayesiaLab's classes have enabled me to make a tremendous leap forward in my research. I now have the tools needed to create powerful predictive models and to generate new insights from large, complex data sets.
BayesiaLab is a great software package which has been created to answer various industrial needs ranging from understanding data to validating business assumptions. BayesiaLab offers a three-days long introductory training session which I found very insightful. I would strongly recommend BayesiaLab as a problem solving laboratory designed for A/B testing, causal inference, or data understanding.
If you want to use BayesiaLab to its full potential, the Advanced Course is a must! It is a great display of BayesiaLab's functionality and value for money in a three-day packed workshop.
Lionel guides you effortlessly through this fascinating course. He's a great communicator who adapts the message so everyone can understand the essence of what is being discussed regardless of their field of practice.
Excellent course with a promising software that can create a big impact on practice.
This advanced course introduces to the next level of the remarkable abilities of BayesiaLab in Bayesian network modeling and data analysis. Emphasizing both building and tweaking the models and detailed analysis of the results, the course also provides in-deep understanding of the concepts introduced in the introductory session. Thorough content, systematic structure, balance between theory and applications together with excellent organization and outstanding delivery make this course a must for those who want to fully utilize the power of BayesiaLab.
It was a very interesting course, learned more about BayesiaLab and learning algorithms
If a new user wants to quickly advance along the learning curve with building Bayesian Networks with BayesiaLab, then this training course is a must.
