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. To learn more, write to us at email@example.com.

by — We recently introduced our report on probabilistic programming. The accompanying prototype allows you to explore the past and future of the New York residential real estate market. This post gives a feel for the content in our report by introducing the algorithms and technology that make probabilistic programming possible. We’ll dive even deeper into these algorithms in conversation with the S...

by — As mobile devices become central to our personal and professional lives, their security is more and more important. Passcodes in particular can be lost (or forcibly surrendered) to law enforcement. Recent research has focussed on behavioural authentication based on patterns of user interaction. This could provide an unintrusive authentication method that operates during normal use. Figure fr...

For this part, we’ll give a broad overview of this topic. image credit: Mediamodifier from Pixabay Motivation Knowledge graphs, graphs with built-in ontologies, create unique opportunities for data analytic...
