Hakaru

Hakaru is a simply-typed probabilistic programming language, designed for easy specification of probabilistic models and inference algorithms. Hakaru enables the design of modular probabilistic inference programs by providing:

  • A language for representing probabilistic distributions, queries, and inferences
  • Methods for transforming probabilistic information, such as conditional probability and probabilistic inference, using computer algebra

It can be used to aid in the creation of machine-learning applications and stochastic modeling to help answer variable queries and distributions.

Warning: This code is alpha and experimental.

For Hakaru documentation, including an installation guide and some sample programs, visit hakaru-dev.github.io.
