Stan vs Swift: What are the differences?
Developers describe Stan as "A Probabilistic Programming Language". A state-of-the-art platform for statistical modeling and high-performance statistical computation. Used for statistical modeling, data analysis, and prediction in the social, biological, and physical sciences, engineering, and business. On the other hand, Swift is detailed as "An innovative new programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch". Writing code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast. Swift is ready for your next iOS and OS X project — or for addition into your current app — because Swift code works side-by-side with Objective-C.
Stan belongs to "Machine Learning Tools" category of the tech stack, while Swift can be primarily classified under "Languages".
Stan and Swift are both open source tools. It seems that Swift with 48.4K GitHub stars and 7.76K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Stan with 1.61K GitHub stars and 279 GitHub forks.
