Hi @anujkharat,

BayesDB, according to the docs, “is a probabilistic programming platform that enables users to query the probable implications of their data as directly as SQL databases enable them to query the data itself.”

It seems promising but is still in the developmental phase.

BayesDB can be used along with python as just another database query language. It installation steps are as follows

git clone https://github.com/probcomp/bayeslite.git cd bayeslite
$ sudo python setup.py install

To use it, refer their documentation.
