Since around 2010, I’ve been involved with using and developing probabilistic programming languages. So when I learn about new language, one of my first questions is whether it’s a good fit for this kind of development. In this post, I’ll talk a bit about working in this area with Julia, to motivate my Soss project.
Domain-Specific Languages At a high level, a probabilistic programming languages is a kind of domain-specific language, or DSL.
