I don’t know when people exactly started using the awesome platform that is IPython to write full-fledged books, but this is one of those that you don’t want to miss. It’s basically a tutorial on Bayesian methods, using the PyMC package to explain several things like,
- What is probabilistic programming?
- How does Bayesian inference work?
- Why should you care about the law of large numbers?
- What is the mysterious MCMC method?
Check it out here. It’s very well-written. 🙂
