Book cover: The Design and Implementation of Probabilistic Programming LanguagesThe Design and Implementation of Probabilistic Programming Languages
by - dippl.org ,
This book explains how to implement PPLs by lightweight embedding into a host language. We illustrate this by designing WebPPL, a small PPL embedded in Javascript. We show how to implement several algorithms for universal probabilistic inference.
