Michael Tingley introduces the world of Probabilistic Programming Languages (PPLs), and why it’s something that the industry should care about today. In addition to introducing PPLs and Bayesian Statistics, Tingley gives a preview of how Facebook is advancing probabilistic programming, as well as some of the big problems they used it to solve.


Michael Tingley is the engineering manager for Facebook’s Probabilistic Programming Languages team. Their goal is to platformize Bayesian modeling and analysis within Facebook, and invest energy and research into cutting-edge techniques that rely on compiler-driven analyses in order to advance the performance and reliability universal Bayesian inference.
