The Design and Implementation of Probabilistic Programming Languages
by

Publisher: dippl.org
Number of pages: 215

Description:
This book explains how to implement PPLs by lightweight embedding into a host language. We illustrate this by designing and implementing WebPPL, a small PPL embedded in Javascript. We show how to implement several algorithms for universal probabilistic inference, including priority-based enumeration with caching, particle filtering, and Markov chain Monte Carlo.
