Week 9 into GSoC¶
The second evaluation for GSoC is cleared. I am happy. Also, the PR #289 for Full Rank ADVI is merged in. This week's time is spent adding small but useful features to PyMC4. The PR #310 includes addition of progress bar. I spent most of the time digging deep into TFP codebase learning how vi module is integrated. Some more features to be included are -
- Parameter Convergence checks
- Low Rank Approximation
- Add a notebook playing around with mcmc and VI approximations over hierarchial models.
I plan to complete all these features before 15 August so that I can spend time writing documentation for PyMC4. I am loving my time with PyMC community.
Thank you for reading!
