TLDR This is part 2 of an article on fitting a Bayesian partial pooling model to predict expected goals. It has the benefits of (a) quantifying aleatory and epistemic uncertainty, and (b) making both group-level (player-specific) and population-level (team-specific) probabilistic predictions.
TLDR The Expected Goals (xG) metric is now widely recognised as numerical measure of the quality of a goal scoring opportunity in a football (soccer) match. In this article we consider how to deal with uncertainty in predicting xG, and how each players individual abilities can be accounted for.
Partial pooling of inspection information from multiple locations to improve probabilistic estimates of corrosion growth rate.
