Modern Probabilistic Modeler Original

The shortest path to building software for Bayesian reasoning and probabilistic machine learning.

This is a practical Bayesian modeling and probabilistic machine learning workshop designed to familiarize you with a proven model-building workflow. We created this workshop in collaboration with consulting clients who lead data science organizations. We sought to solve two key problems:

  1. How can we turn our experts' domain knowledge into computable artifacts that we own?
  2. How can we go beyond simple importing of libraries to building models and model artifacts that grow in value over time?
