### Comparing transition matrices for Markov chains

I have a population, each unit of which exists in one of several states that change over time. I am using first-order Markov chains to model these state transitions. My population can be segmented ...

### If I use Gibbs sampling with a Bayesian model, what do I have to check is memoryless?

Right now I am trying to better understand how Bayesian modeling works with just the basics. I found through reading tutorials that some very basic Bayesian models like Bayesian Hierarchical Modeling ...

### Identifying sequences of behavioral interactions between multiple individuals

I'm wondering if anyone might have some novel insights as to the best way to analyze the following data. It's a problem I've been thinking about in the back of my mind for a while, so I thought that ...

### "Learning" algorithm to use when future depends on past events (MDP property not met)

There are around 5 different retirement plans available in my country. People can pick from them freely. I would like to create a solution that would try to predict the best plan(s) given a particular ...

### How to use HMMs for continuous value prediction

I have some time-series data, which I need to use to predict a continuous value for a given time-stamp. I was initially doing it using a Multivariate Regression Model but I later figured that a time-...

### state transition classification on terminal state

I have data on a unit $i$ which enters an entry state $S_0$. This unit has some covariates $x_i$ I would like to predict the probability the unit will reach the terminal state $S_{pos}$ or $S_{neg}$. ...

### How do I test and validate a Markov Model in RStudio?

I've created a Markov Model in RStudio using the seqHMM library. I'm new to R and would usually do this kind of thing in Python, but I wanted to use seqHMM. I can see the model has been created and it ...

### Reinforcement learning - generating a matrix of continuous values with varying size for test data generation

Currently, I am using RL A3C algorithm for test data generation, where for a set of 30 functions written in C (mostly basic algorithms like Prime number checks, triangle validity, etc.) I try to ...

### How to set the parameters of a Hidden Markov Model that'll be used to correct the mistakes by a previous classifier?

Say we've previously used a neural network or some other classifier C with $N$ training samples $I:=\{I_1,...I_N\}$ (that has a sequence or context, but is ignored by C) the, belonging to $K$ classes. ...
