Generative Models and Uncertainty Quantification (GenU 2019)

Generative models and uncertainty quantification lie at the heart of Bayesian modelling and inference. At this small meeting, we discuss recent developments within the field. The meeting is deliberately kept small in order to ensure that discussion remains honest, lively and interesting.
