While My MCMC Gently Samples

Bayesian modeling, Data Science, and Python

MCMC sampling for dummies

When I give talks about probabilistic programming and Bayesian statistics, I usually gloss over the details of how inference is actually performed, treating it as a black box essentially. The beauty of probabilistic programming is that you actually don't have to understand how the inference works in order to build …

A modern guide to getting started with Data Science and Python

Python has an extremely rich and healthy ecosystem of data science tools. Unfortunately, to outsiders this ecosystem can look like a jungle (cue snake joke). In this blog post I will provide a step-by-step guide to venturing into this PyData jungle.

What's wrong with the many lists of PyData packages …
