EM and Gibbs algorithms for generalized Bradley-Terry models
The Bradley-Terry model is a very popular model for ranking with paired comparisons. Various extensions of this model have been proposed to handle home advantage, ties, multiple comparisons or team comparisons. In this talk I will present EM algorithms and Gibbs samplers for Maximum A Posteriori estimation and full Bayesian inference with these models.
