In this article we propose a new Rao-Blackwellized particle filtering based algorithm for tracking an unknown number of targets. The algorithm is based on formulating probabilistic stochastic process models for target states, data associations, and birth and death processes. The tracking of these stochastic processes is implemented using sequential Monte… (More)

We give a short review on the Bayesian approach for neural network learning and demonstrate the advantages of the approach in three real applications. We discuss the Bayesian approach with emphasis on the role of prior knowledge in Bayesian models and in classical error minimization approaches. The generalization capability of a statistical model, classical… (More)

In this article we introduce the DRIFTER algorithm, which is a new model based Bayesian method for retrospective elimination of physiological noise from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. In the method, we first estimate the frequency trajectories of the physiological signals with the interacting multiple models (IMM) filter algorithm. The… (More)

Leave-one-out cross-validation (LOO) and the widely applicable information criterion (WAIC) are methods for estimating pointwise out-of-sample prediction accuracy from a fitted Bayesian model using the log-likelihood evaluated at the posterior simulations of the parameter values. LOO and WAIC have various advantages over simpler estimates of predictive… (More)

In this work, we discuss practical methods for the assessment, comparison, and selection of complex hierarchical Bayesian models. A natural way to assess the goodness of the model is to estimate its future predictive capability by estimating expected utilities. Instead of just making a point estimate, it is important to obtain the distribution of the… (More)

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) allows millisecond-scale non-invasive measurement of magnetic fields generated by neural currents in the brain. However, localization of the underlying current sources is ambiguous due to the so-called inverse problem. The most widely used source localization methods (i.e., minimum-norm and minimum-current estimates (MNE and… (More)

We review the Akaike, deviance, and Watanabe-Akaike information criteria from a Bayesian perspective, where the goal is to estimate expected out-of-sample-prediction error using a bias-corrected adjustment of within-sample error. We focus on the choices involved in setting up these measures, and we compare them in three simple examples, one theoretical and… (More)

We consider the input variable selection in complex Bayesian hierarchical models. Our goal is to find a model with the smallest number of input variables having statistically or practically at least the same expected utility as the full model with all the available inputs. A good estimate for the expected utility can be computed using cross-validation… (More)

– We propose a new Rao-Blackwellized sequential Monte Carlo method for tracking multiple targets in presence of clutter and false alarm measurements. The advantage of the new approach is that Rao-Blackwellization allows the estimation algorithm to be partitioned into single target tracking and data association sub-problems, where the single target tracking… (More)
