Time for a summer get-together with a focus on PyMC3.
Bayesian non-parametric classification and regression with Gaussian processes in PyMC3 - Chris Fonnesbeck, Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at Vanderbilt University (https://medschool.vanderbilt.edu/cqs/people/Chris/Fonnesbeck/cqs-faculty-members) and core contributor & maintainer of PyMC3 (http://pymc-devs.github.io/pymc3/), the leading package for Bayesian inference in Python.
Chris spoke at and lead our PyMC3 Summer Special (https://www.meetup.com/Bayesian-Mixer-London/events/230457771/) last summer and we're delighted to host him again this year. Interest in probabilistic programming is growing like wildfire and with more and more data scientists & statisticians using PyMC3, it's great to have the views of a leader in the field.
We'll also make 10 mins for lightning talks if anyone wants to get up and quickly tell us all about anything cool they're working on / new packages etc.
18:30 - Welcome, general chatter
19:00 - Talks begin
20:00 - Head to the Queen's Arms (https://goo.gl/maps/qWvVg4qaYJ72) for a drink and chat
We're always looking for new speakers, so please stick around and discuss things afterwards.
