It is another year of the Google Summer of Code time, and we have compiled an updated list of exciting Turing projects! Projects that the Turing team would be interested in working with students on over the summer are listed below. This information is also cross-posted at Julia's Turing project page.
It's about time for us to start thinking about projects we'd like to see at Turing.jl for the Google Summer of Code 2021! Below is a list of projects the Turing team would be interested in working with students on for the summer.
As the 2020 Google Summer of Code comes to a close, the Turing team thought it would be a good opportunity to reflect on the work that was done by our superb students this summer.
Replication study: Estimating number of infections and impact of NPIs on COVID-19 in European countries (Imperial Report 13)May 14, 2020
The Turing.jl team is currently exploring possibilities in an attempt to help with the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 crisis. As preparation for this and to get our feet wet, we decided to perform a replication study of the Imperial Report 13, which attempts to estimate the real number of infections and impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions on COVID-19. In the report, the inference was performed using the probabilistic programming language (PPL) Stan. We have explicated their model and inference in Turing.jl, a Julia-based PPL. We believe the results and analysis of our study are relevant for the public, and for other researchers who are actively working on epidemiological models. To that end, our implementation and results are available here.
Last year, Turing participated in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) through the Julia language organization. It was a fun time, and the project was better for it. Turing plans to participate in the upcoming GSoC, and we wanted to outline some potential projects and expectations we have for applicants.
All good open source projects should have a blog, and Turing is one such project. Later on, members of the Turing team may be populating this feed with posts on topics like
