We’d like to thank our sponsors once again. Without our sponsors, we wouldn’t have been able to run the conference.
- Columbia University Data Science Institute
The Data Science Institute at Columbia University is training the next generation of data scientists and developing innovative technology to serve society. Many DSI faculty and students use Stan in their research. In addition some Stan developers are part of DSI.
- Facebook Research
Facebook Research uses Stan to implement production data science tools, primarily for its ability to streamline advanced model fitting and simple integration with R and Python. They also use Stan for estimation/inference in research projects, for instance to analyze the results of complex experiments.
- Metrum Research Group
Metrum Research Group is increasingly using Stan for Bayesian analysis of a range of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data. Most often we use hierarchical models for the analysis of longitudinal data from multiple individual patients in clinical trials. The results are used to aid decision-making clinical development programs, e.g., dosing regimen optimization, design of future clinical trials, go/no-go decisions.
- Real Capital Analytics
Real Capital Analytics is the authority on the deals, players and trends driving commercial real estate investments. They use Stan to create their real estate index.
- Stan Group
Stan Group is building a cloud compute platform for making decisions under uncertainty. They are backed by Techstars. Stan Group uses Stan to help pharma companies estimate models for early stage cancer research, baseball teams to estimate player abilities, a sports betting market place to assess the skill of the bettors, and many others.
Thanks again for coming to the first Stan Conference. We hope to see you at the next one!
