Embedded probabilistic programming in Clojure

Nils Bertschinger

Abstract


Probabilistic programming is a powerful tool to specify probabilistic models directly in terms of a computer program. Here, I present a library that allows to embed probabilistic computations into Clojure. Automatic tracking of dependencies between probabilistic choice points enables an efficient way to sample from the distribution corresponding to a probabilistic program.
