On Tuesday, we hosted an online talk with the Stan Group discussing why probabilistic programming is generating so much excitement in the fields of machine learning and statistics. In essence, probabilistic programming is a powerful tool to help organizations make rational decisions under uncertainty.
Watching the recording, you will learn:
- What kinds of problems are a good fit for Bayesian inference
- How a model-centric approach changes data science workflows
- How to use probabilistic programming for revenue models
- What Hamiltonian Monte Carlo is and why it’s tricky to use
- What Stan is, what it does well, and what its limitations are
- What we’re excited about in the near future
This online talk part of a series of educational resources accompanying our recent research on probabilistic programming. Our research dives deeper into the topic, teaching readers how to build products using Bayesian inference models.

Have you ever wondered what your photos say about how you look at the world and who you are? Your images won’t say much about what types of things you tend to post unless you routinely tag them. Our new toy application, Pictograph, catalogs the objects that make up your Instagram identity. Pictograph analyzes your Instagram photos and creates a visualization, or pictograph, of what you like t...

by — Deep learning is a hot and fascinating research area, particularly when applied to classifying images. While researching the Fast Forward Labs Deep Learning: Image Analysis report, we played with a lot of very cool technology. In this blog post, we offer a guide to getting started with deep learning by using APIs from some of the most interesting deep-learning-as-a-service startups. These APIs...
