A presentation on Bayesian hierarchical modeling

This is a slide deck that I put together for my day job. It explains Bayesian hierarchical modeling.

It's given in the context of A/B testing and multiple comparisons, and assumes some knowledge of Beta distributions - but even if you don't have that background, it should still be useful as an intuitive, conceptual understanding of Bayesian logic and hierarchical modeling.

In particular, there's one part in my Bayesian evaluation for the likelihood of Christ's resurrection where I mention Bayesian hierarchical modeling in passing. This presentation actually came out of me thinking through that part. So I thought I'd make a post out of it.
