Reverse-engineered Simulations Could Power New Scientific Discoveries
News   Nov 13, 2019

What does a simulation tell us? It's a question asked across many fields, such as epidemiology and climate science. Probabilistic programming offers a solution –essentially reverse-engineering the simulation – but this is a complex, computing power-heavy technique. A new project, capable of controlling existing simulators and running at large-scale on HPC platforms, could revolutionize the field.
