Probabilistic programming does in 50 lines of code what used to take thousands
To make machine-learning applications easier to build, computer scientists have begun developing so-called probabilistic programming languages, which let researchers mix and match machine-learning tec...
Programming languages
A programming language is a formal constructed language designed to communicate instructions to a machine, particularly a computer. Programming languages can be used to create programs to control the ...
Programming language comparisons
Programming languages are used for controlling the behavior of a machine (often a computer). Like natural languages, programming languages conform to rules for syntax and semantics.There are thousands...

A programming language is a formal constructed language designed to communicate instructions to a machine, particularly a computer. Programming languages can be used to create programs to control the ...
Programming language implementation
A programming language implementation is a system for executing computer programs. There are two general approaches to programming language implementation:Notice that a compiler does not directly exec...
Model of computation
In computability theory and computational complexity theory, a model of computation is the definition of the set of allowable operations used in computation and their respective costs. It is used for ...
Programming paradigm
A programming paradigm is a fundamental style of computer programming, serving as a way of building the structure and elements of computer programs. Capabilities and styles of various programming lan...
Programming language theory
Programming language theory (PLT) is a branch of computer science that deals with the design, implementation, analysis, characterization, and classification of programming languages and their individu...

Assignment (computer science)
In computer programming, an assignment statement sets and/or re-sets the value stored in the storage location(s) denoted by a variable name; in other words, it copies the value into the variable. In m...

Gordon David Plotkin, FRS, FRSE (born 9 September 1946) is a theoretical computer scientist in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. Plotkin is probably best known for his introduc...
Compiler construction
Compiler construction is an area of computer science that deals with the theory and practice of developing programming languages and their associated compilers.The theoretical portion is primarily con...
XL (XML programming language)
XL is an XML programming language for implementing Web Services. It was created in 2001 by Daniela Florescu (XQRL Inc.), Andreas Grünhagen and Donald Kossmann (ETH Zürich). XL is still under developme...
Picture clause
COBOL (/ˈkoʊbɒl/, an acronym for common business-oriented language) is a compiled English-like computer programming language designed for business use. It is imperative, procedural and, since 2002, ob...
Ad-hoc polymorphism
In programming languages, ad hoc polymorphism is a kind of polymorphism in which polymorphic functions can be applied to arguments of different types, because a polymorphic function can denote a numbe...
Runtime library
In computer programming, a runtime library is a set of low-level routines used by a compiler to invoke some of the behaviors of a runtime environment, by inserting calls to the runtime library into co...
Execution semantics
A programming language is a formal constructed language designed to communicate instructions to a machine, particularly a computer. Programming languages can be used to create programs to control the ...
Visual modeling
Visual modeling is the graphic representation of objects and systems of interest using graphical languages. Visual modeling languages may be General-Purpose Modeling (GPM) languages (e.g., UML, South...
Variable (computer programming)
In computer programming, a variable or scalar is a storage location paired with an associated symbolic name (an identifier), which contains some known or unknown quantity or information referred to as...
Collective Optimization Database
The Collective Optimization Database is an open repository to enable sharing of benchmarks, data sets and optimization cases from the community, provide web services and plugins to analyze optimizatio...
Dependently typed programming
In computer science and logic, a dependent type is a type that depends on a value. It is an overlapping feature of math-encoding type theory and bug-stopping type systems. In intuitionistic type theo...
C3 linearization
In computing, the C3 superclass linearization is an algorithm used primarily to obtain the order in which methods should be inherited (the "linearization") in the presence of multiple inheritance, and...
Program optimization
In computer science, program optimization or software optimization is the process of modifying a software system to make some aspect of it work more efficiently or use fewer resources. In general, a c...
