**Turing** is a *universal* probabilistic programming language with a focus on intuitive modelling interface, composable probabilistic inference and computational scalability.

# What you getâ€¦

Turing provides **Hamiltonian Monte Carlo** (HMC) and **particle MCMC** sampling algorithms for complex posterior distributions (e.g. those involving discrete variables and stochastic control flows). Current features include:

**Universal**probabilistic programming with an intuitive modelling interface**Hamiltonian Monte Carlo**(HMC) sampling for differentiable posterior distributions**Particle MCMC**sampling for complex posterior distributions involving discrete variables and stochastic control flows**Gibbs**sampling that combines particle MCMC, HMC and many other MCMC algorithms
