Title: A Sneak Preview of PyMC4
PyMC4 is still in pre-release development. Chris will give a overview of PyMC4, a high-level probabilistic programming interface for TensorFlow, for Bayesian modelling and machine learning. It is the successor of PyMC3, which uses Theano (now discontinued) as its computational backend.

Presenter: Chris Fonnesbeck
Chris is a Senior Quantitative Analyst in Baseball Operations for the New York Yankees. He is interested in computational statistics, machine learning, Bayesian methods, and applied decision analysis. He hails from Vancouver, Canada and received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia.

Date & time: 1st October 2020, 19:00 (UK time, i.e. GMT + 1) on Google Meets

Registration: To register please send use the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/dbVxV25JYtyee6m87

We will need your email address to send you the conference call details. We will try to use Google Meets for this Meet-up, simply because I have a subscription with Google, but not with any of the other providers, such as Zoom. Google Chrome seems to work best with Meet, or the dedicated Google Meet app for your mobile devices/tablets. This online meeting is limited to 150 participants.
