How to Train a Machine Learning Model in JASP: Clustering

This is a continuation of our series on machine learning methods that have been implemented in JASP (version 0.11 onwards).     In this blog post we train a machine learning model to find clusters within our data set. The goal of a clustering task is to detect structures in the data. To do so, the algorithm needs to (1)…

How to Train a Machine Learning Model in JASP: Classification

In this blog post, we show how to train a classification model using JASP’s newly released Machine Learning Module. The goal of a classification task is to predict a categorical target variable based on a (possibly large) set of features/predictors. For instance, based on different concentrations of proteins, a medical specialist might want to classify tissue as “benign” or “malignant”.…

JASP for Audit: Bayesian Tools for the Auditing Practice

This post is an extended synopsis of Derks et al. (2019). JASP for Audit: Bayesian Tools for the Auditing Practice. Preprint available on PsyArXiv: https://psyarxiv.com/9f6ub/ Abstract Statistical theory lies at the core of many auditing guidelines and procedures. Consequently, an auditor needs easy-to-use software that implements the required statistical analyses as well as sufficient knowledge to interpret the results of…
