Turing: Probabalistic Programming in Julia
2019-07-25, 15:45–16:15, Room 349

Turing is a probabilistic programming language written in Julia. This talk will introduce Turing and its tooling ecosystem, as well as go over some introductory tutorials.

During the course of the talk, I will introduce Turing's modeling syntax, some typical workflows, and examples of how Turing integrates with notable Julia packages such as Flux.jl or DifferentialEquations.jl. Additionally, I hope to present the status on some of the Julia Summer of Code projects, which may include Variational Inference or greater Gaussian processes integration with Stheno.jl, among others.
