Fritz Obermeyer has been modeling data in Python for more than two decades. His work connects probabilistic tooling, programming languages, and applied science. Since 2017 he has led the development of the open-source library Pyro, a deep probabilistic programming language built on PyTorch, with over 100 contributors. Most recently, Dr. Obermeyer has been applying Pyro to bioscience problems, including virology at the Broad Institute and protein design at Generate Biomedicines.
