Hackage Stackage Nightly Hackage Deps Build status

A library for probabilistic programming in Haskell using probability monads. The emphasis is on composition of inference algorithms implemented in terms of monad transformers.

Created by Adam Scibior (@adscib), maintained by Tweag I/O.

Project status

Now that monad-bayes has been released on Hackage, we will focus on improving documentation. In the meantime, see the models folder for examples.


The basis for the code in this repository is the ICFP 2018 paper [2]. For the code associated with the Haskell2015 paper [1], see the haskell2015 tag.
