## Probability monads at Hac 07 II

Posted by Eric Kidd Tue, 02 Oct 2007 07:50:00 GMT

From October 5-7, I’ll be at the Haskell Hackathon in Freiburg.

I’ll be working on probability monads, attempting to turn my various blog articles into a real Haskell library.

Some resources:

- Control.Monad.Probability source code: This is the as-yet-unreconstructed code from my blog posts.
- Draft paper on probability monads: This paper explains the theory, and it has terser implementations of some ideas.

If you were a peer reviewer, or gave me feedback on the paper, my humble thanks–and apologies. I haven’t had a chance to revise the paper yet, and so your feedback is not yet included.

See you at the Hackathon!

Dan Psaid about 13 hours later:Cool! Have fun in Freiburg.

Nicksaid about 15 hours later:Awesome! Good luck with the library, and have fun at the Hackathon!

Ericsaid 1 day later:Thanks!

If anyone needs to contact me, please send me an e-mail (or use the contact form), and I’ll send you my German phone number as soon as the SIM shops open.

Ericsaid 2 days later:There’s a list of things to do on the Hackathon Wiki.

Doug Auclairsaid 43 days later:Hello Eric from Dylan hacking days!

re: your Haskell probability monad, there was a presentation at the PADL2006 on a (probability) distribution monad and its implementation. Steve was the presenter there, and my review (including a link to the Haskell source) is at http://www.logicaltypes.com/literature/padl.html#pres-practical-dist

Not sure if the two monad types are related, but FYI.

Sincerely, Doug Auclair
