Foundations for Bayesian Updating

submitted by: dougramsey
We provide a simple characterization of updating rules that can be rationalized as Bayesian. Namely, we consider a general setting in which an agent observes finite sequences of signals and reports probabilistic predictions on the underlying state of the world. We study when such predictions are consistent with Bayesian updating, i.e., when does there exist some theory about the signal generation process that would be consistent with the agent behaving as a Bayesian updater. We show that the...

Metagenomic Analysis of Deep Subsurface Environments Hideto Takami, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC)

submitted by: dougramsey
As a deep subsurface biosphere is thought to be the biggest biosphere in the earth, it is very interesting to know the phylogenetic and functional diversity in such environments. However, there is a little biological information for them because it is very hard to recover whole microbial community by only culture-base methods. In that sense, metagenomics is one of major useful methods to elucidate the microbial flora in unknown biosphere, which seems to be constructed by mainly unculturable...
