Probabilistic programming practical materials

MLSS 2015

There is a getting started guide which explains how to get up and running with Anglican.

After installing everything, there is a Hello World! worksheet that teaches you enough Clojure and Anglican to get started with the included exercises.

There are four exercises that we recommend you do in the following order:

1 Gaussian 2 Physics 3 Traces 4 Coordination.

Having finished these you both should be able to program in Anglican and have developed reasonable intuitions about how probabilistic programming systems work.
