Dimple is an open-source software tool for probabilistic modeling, inference, and learning. Dimple allows models to be specified in the form of probabilistic graphical models, and can perform inference on those models using a variety of algorithms, including various forms of belief propagation and Gibbs sampling.
Dimple allows a user to construct probabilistic models in a form largely independent of the algorithm used to perform inference on it. This is intended to allow rapid prototyping of complicated probabilistic models, freeing the user from the complexities of the inference algorithms.
Dimple is open source and maintained as a Github project.
Features include:If you have issues using Dimple, feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
or report them on https://github.com/AnalogDevicesLyricLabs/dimple/issues.
We also maintain two public mailing lists for dimple users: dimple-users and dimple-beta. The former is for announcements and discussion of Dimple. The latter is for users who want to check out and use pre-release code from the master branch and want to be informed of recent or upcoming changes or discuss issues or concerns with the pre-release. To subscribe to either list send mail to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org with "subscribe" in the subject line.
