Introduction to Figaro, Presentation to Boston Area Scala Group, Cambridge, MA, (26 February, 2013)

Probabilistic models form the foundation of modern ML and AI. However, building and using models that represent large and complex scenarios is a daunting task for even the most expert and experienced programmers. As a result, there has been significant effort lately on the development of probabilistic programming languages, enabling probabilistic processes and algorithms to be specified using programming language constructs. These languages allow users to quickly and easily construct probabilistic models with little ML and AI experience.
