    We present a Bayesian approach for making statistical inference about the accuracy (or any other score) of two competing algorithms which have been assessed via cross-validation on multiple data sets. The approach is constituted by two pieces. The first is a novel correlated Bayesian $$t$$ test...

    This paper provides a Bayesian unified framework to analyze mixture models of one-parameter distributions from a subclass of the exponential family. Firstly, the problem of choosing a suitable prior distribution on the component distributions is addressed in a context where the number of...

    Purpose: Data mining in spontaneous reporting databases generates large numbers of signals of disproportionate reporting (SDRs) that need to be prioritised for assessment. The pharmacological relevance of drug-event associations is not considered in SDR prioritisation algorithms. This aimed to...
