Alp Kucukelbir


Edward is a Python library for probabilistic modeling, inference, and criticism. It enables black box inference for models with discrete and continuous latent variables, neural network parameterizations, and infinite dimensional parameter spaces. Edward serves as a fusion of three fields: Bayesian statistics and machine learning, deep learning, and probabilistic programming. install source

Automatic Differentiation Variational Inference (ADVI)

ADVI is a fully automated variational inference algorithm. We developed and deployed it in the Stan probabilistic programming system. The user specifies a model in an intuitive language and Stan compiles this into an inference program. Stan supports many popular interfaces, such as Python, R, MATLAB, and Julia. It has around 10 000 active users around the world. install source

Local Resolution (ResMap)

ResMap is a Python application with a Tkinter GUI. It is a standalone software package for computing the local resolution of 3D density maps studied in structural biology, primarily electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM). ResMap works on Mac, Linux, and Windows; it has over 5 000 downloads. install source
