There are a lot of ongoing debates between the Bayesian approach and doing conformal prediction. And I think this debate should not exist at all. Conformal prediction is a great approach, and it is more or less orthogonal to the Bayesian analysis. I’ll try to explain my vision about how conformal prediction relates to Bayesian analysis, what they share in common and why they are still very different.

I talk about the Bayesian approach to wide range of problems. Show how it is related to traditional methods in ML and what tasks benefit from an alternative view.

I talk about the Bayesian approach to AB testing. The approach consists of 3 steps: making a hypothesis about the experiment, understanding time and data constraints, and interpreting the results after collecting the data. The advantage is that the Bayesian AB(C) test does not require p-values, corrections or bootstrap procedures, is conservative (does not exaggerate the result on small data) and is easily interpreted for business.

Industry data scientists are increasingly making the shift over to using Bayesian methods. However, one often cited reason for avoiding this is because “Bayesian methods are slow.” There can be some truth to this, although this is often a non-issue unless working at serious scale.
