GIS Group of Inductive Statistics

The objective of the group is to study inductive statistics methods, creating an research environment for researchers, academics and professionals who make from the inductive statistical tools a instrument of work.

It is widely recognized by the general scientific community the importance of using statistical methods in the development of their research. We emphasize the applied statistical methods, as well as their foundations. We discuss statistical foundations and their proper application in practical problems.

Interest in foundations of inductive Statistics has been growing together with the increasing availability of Bayesian methodological alternatives. Scientists need to deal with the even more difficult choice of the optimal method to be applied to their problem. The examination and discussion on foundations prevent the mere ad–hoc application of Bayesian methods by the scientific community.
