Masterclass: Probabilistic Programming

Speaker: Frank Wood

Date: Monday 8 May

Time: 11:00-13:00 and 14:00-16:00

Email: The Alan Turing Institute Doctoral Scheme to attend.

The sessions will be a mixture of lecture and hands on training.

They will be livestreamed and recorded.


Turing Faculty Fellow, Frank Wood will lead the sessions; during the masterclass you will discuss:

  • What probabilistic programming is and how it’s different to a normal programming.
  • How to write a probabilistic program and have the resources to get started if you want to.
  • Understanding and writing functional programs (Clojure)
  • Understanding and writing probabilistic programs (Anglican)
  • How advanced higher-order probabilistic programming systems work at a very high level.
  • See where the field is going and why you should pay attention.
