Probabilistic Modeling, Bayesian Inference, Uncertainty Estimation


Dr. Shinichi Nakajima leads the Independent Research Group Probabilistic Modeling and Inference. His aim is to develop novel probabilistic models and inference methods for multimodal, heterogeneous, and complex structured data analysis. In particular he wants to provide machine learning tools that can incorporate multiple aspects of data samples observed under different circumstances, in efficient and theoretically grounded ways. This includes:

  • Developing novel probabilistic models with efficient inference methods
  • Exploring novel applications of probabilistic models
  • Establishing uncertainty estimation methods for deep probabilistic models
