I’m a “highly functional” Autistic. It takes a lot of work.
I am also terrible at bodily self-awareness, including knowledge of my own hunger cues. This is a really common Autistic trait.

What is a statistical model?
A Bayesian model in the sense of Berge (1985), Smith (1984) or Bernardo and Smith (1994) requires an extra component in the form of a judgment of infinite exchangeability or partial exchangeability in which parameters are defined by limits of certain statistics. Although Bayesian formulations are not the primary focus of this paper, the notion that the model is extendable to a sequence, usually infinite, is a key concept.

Automating Inference, Learning, and Design using Probabilistic Programming
Imagine a world where computational simulations can be inverted as easily as running them forwards, where data can be used to refine models automatically, and where the only expertise one needs to carry out powerful statistical analysis is a basic proficiency in scientific coding. Creating such a world is the ambitious long-term aim of _probabilistic programming._
