New lisp-dialect for probabilistic models

Postby bsdfish » Sat Jul 12, 2008 4:36 am

I'm currently at UAI and there is a really interesting paper which uses the code-as-data aspect of lisp to create a language in which you can describe an arbitrary probabilistic model, and do inference on it.

Wow. I wish I did more statistics units in uni. That looks like some very powerful code :ugeek:. I'd like to see how it grows (once I know enough stats :idea:, I'd like to use it).
