Researchers have built probabilistic models and deep learning models that have provided benefits in various domains. The probabilistic programming platforms and languages of today empower non-experts to create and apply such probabilistic models based on Bayesian inference techniques. In this tutorial, we combine the power of Edward and TensorFlow to teach how to apply probabilistic programming and deep learning for use cases such as dimensionality reduction and classification in computer vision and image processing.
