IDS.190 – Topics in Bayesian Modeling and Computation


Brian Patton (Google AI)


TensorFlow Probability provides a toolkit to enable
researchers and practitioners to integrate uncertainty with
gradient-based deep learning on modern accelerators. In this talk
we’ll walk through some practical problems addressed using TFP;
discuss the high-level interfaces, goals, and principles of the
library; and touch on some recent innovations in describing
probabilistic graphical models. Time-permitting, we may touch on a
couple areas of research interest for the team.
