Infer.NET is a framework for running Bayesian inference in graphical models.


A challenge for most of us is simply wanting to work out the odds of something happening in a game or an app..

Well here a nice technical solution from Microsoft Research to help with answering that challenge..

Welcome to Infer.NET

Infer.NET is a framework for running Bayesian inference in graphical models. It can also be used for probabilistic programming as shown in this video.

You can use Infer.NET to solve many different kinds of machine learning problems, from standard problems like classification, recommendation or clustering through to customised solutions to domain-specific problems.

    One thing to note: Check the License, research.microsoft.com/…/InferNetLicense_2.6.pdf

    It's licensed under MSR-LA, for Non-Commercial Use Only…

    I've been following this project for a while hoping for a license change… 🙁

    Hi Greg

    Do you know Andrew Fryer @deepfat he is the best person to speak to re this see his blog he is at the UK Data Science Expert so has great networks with MS Research see blogs.technet.com/…/andrew
