**Fast and Intuitive Statistical Modeling with Pomegranate**- Dec 21, 2020.

Pomegranate is a delicious fruit. It can also be a super useful Python library for statistical analysis. We will show how in this article.**Practical Markov Chain Monte Carlo**- Jun 26, 2020.

This is a slightly more intricate example of MCMC, compared to many with a fairly simple model, a single predictor (maybe two), and not much else, which highlights a couple of issues and tricks worth noting for a handwritten implementation.**A Comprehensive Guide to Natural Language Generation**- Jan 7, 2020.

Follow this overview of Natural Language Generation covering its applications in theory and practice. The evolution of NLG architecture is also described from simple gap-filling to dynamic document creation along with a summary of the most popular NLG models.**Markov Chains: How to Train Text Generation to Write Like George R.
