Information regarding GSOC 2019

development

#1

Hello People,
I was going through the gsoc project list of pymc, and found the ode solver project quite interesting. Could the mentors elaborate on the scope of the project, and what are the topics they are planning to cover under the span of this project for gsoc 2019?

Edit : @junpenglao Can you help me out?

I think it is a bit too early to plan about GSoC 2019… As for the project scope, I am not sure who is currently working on this (@aseyboldt is doing some work linking julia ODE solver to pymc3, @michaelosthege also implemented some version of ODE solver). Overall, the plan is to implement a ODE solver with gradient for parameters (which is the reason we cannot just use the ODE solver in scipy).
