The Boltzmann Machine in Psychometrics: Implications and Applications

Presenters: Benjamin Deonovic (Corteva), Timo Bechger (Metior Consulting), Gunter Maris (Metior Consulting)

The Boltzmann machine remains an attractive generative model for supervised and unsupervised learning of complex multivariate distributions of binary random variables. Often the observed variables are augmented with unobserved binary variables and a Boltzmann machine is assumed for both together. Popular examples are restricted Boltzmann machines, latent tree models, and deep Boltzmann machines.

Presentations now available for viewing

The on-demand feature in the Ex Ordo system is now open and can be accessed after you log in to your Ex Ordo account (https://event.imps2021.exordo.com/) under the “On Demand” menu. With the virtual setup, a significant part of the conference experience happens before the meeting itself, so we hope you will take time in the next two weeks to view the various presentations that have been uploaded. Please note that the keynote and invited talks will only occur live, so there will not be presentation materials posted for these talks.
