Super hypothetical question… what if we used Autograd as the computational backend for PyMC4?
Happy for the idea to be shot down. One (and possibly only) advantage I could think of off the top of my head is that we’d never have to be swept away by a package going out of fad; Autograd is architecturally simple though a teeny bit of an overhead to maintain.
Anyways, just thought I’d ask, and maybe this’ll also revive some interest in the PyMC4 backend discussion. It feels like there’s a time limit before PyMC3 has to sunset, and I’d hate for this wonderful package to go away.
