Turing.jl

Build Status Coverage Status codecov Documentation ColPrac: Contributor's Guide on Collaborative Practices for Community Packages

Turing.jl is a Julia library for general-purpose probabilistic programming. Turing allows the user to write models using standard Julia syntax, and provides a wide range of sampling-based inference methods for solving problems across probabilistic machine learning, Bayesian statistics, and data science. Compared to other probabilistic programming languages, Turing has a special focus on modularity, and decouples the modelling language (i.e. the compiler) and inference methods. This modular design, together with the use of a high-level numerical language Julia, makes Turing particularly extensible: new model families and inference methods can be easily added.

Current features include:

Want to contribute?

Turing was originally created and is now managed by Hong Ge. Current and past Turing team members include Hong Ge, Kai Xu, Martin Trapp, Mohamed Tarek, Cameron Pfiffer, Tor Fjelde. You can see the full list of on Github: https://github.com/TuringLang/Turing.jl/graphs/contributors.

Turing is an open source project so if you feel you have some relevant skills and are interested in contributing then please do get in touch. See the Contributing page for details on the process. You can contribute by opening issues on Github or implementing things yourself and making a pull request. We would also appreciate example models written using Turing.

Issues and Discussions

Issues related to bugs and feature requests are welcome on the issues page, while discussions and questions about statistical applications and theory should can place on the Discussions page or our channel (#turing) in the Julia Slack chat.
