GSoC Blog 2- Gen tutorial

4 minute read


Work in Progress Update

The last few weeks have been extremely fulfilling while I learnt more about Gen, Arviz and the entire PPL ecosystem. I’m almost close to the completion of my project and the next 2 weeks I will be focusing on winding up and making any changes required to the code. Since I have been learning to use Gen for some time now I realised it would be helpful to put a tutorial out there.

Some background about Gen

Gen is a platform for probabilistic modeling and inference. Gen includes a set of built-in languages for defining probabilistic models and a standard library for defining probabilistic inference algorithms, but is designed to be extended with an open-ended set of more specialized modeling languages and inference libraries.
