SUMMARY:Benjamin Elder (Nottingham)
DESCRIPTION:Dark energy in the lab: searching for chameleons and symmetrons with atom interferometry \n \nTheories of dark energy generically introduce new degrees of freedom to the gravitational sector. These degrees of freedom mediate a fifth force between matter particles\, which can in principle be an O(1) correction to General Relativity. Compatibility with traditional tests of gravity requires that such forces be dynamically suppressed\, or screened\, in certain environments like the Solar System. I will discuss how a new generation of laboratory-based measurements of gravity\, designed to be sensitive to screened forces\, are playing a vital role in the search for dark energy. In particular\, I will focus on two popular models of screened dark energy\, the chameleon and the symmetron\, and the strong new bounds on those theories coming from atom interferometers. \n

SUMMARY:Cristiano Villa (University of Kent)
DESCRIPTION:Title: A Loss-Based Prior for Variable Selection in Linear Regression Methods \nAbstract: In this work we propose a novel model prior for variable selection in linear regression. The idea is to determine the prior mass by considering the worth of each of the regression models\, given the number of possible covariates under consideration. The worth of a model consists of the information loss and the loss due to model complexity. While the information loss is determined objectively\, the loss expression due to model complexity is flexible and\, the penalty on model size can be even customized to include some prior knowledge. Some versions of the loss-based prior are proposed and compared empirically. Through simulation studies and real data analyses\, we compare the proposed prior to the Scott and Berger prior\, for noninformative scenarios\, and with the Beta-Binomial prior\, for informative scenarios. \n

SUMMARY:Deborah Ashby (President of the Royal Statistical Society)
DESCRIPTION:The Royal Statistical Society was founded to address social problems ‘through the collection and classification of facts’\, leading to many developments in the collection of data\, the development of methods for analysing them\, and the development of statistics as a profession. Nearly 200 years later an explosion in computational power has led\, in turn\, to an explosion in data. We outline the challenges and the actions needed to exploit that data for the public good\, and to address the step change in statistical skills and capacity development necessary to enable our vision of a world where data are at the heart of understanding and decision-making. \n
