I am keen to know developers’ thoughts on how to make it easy for users to spin up and access a remote instance of Stan.
My assumption is that the remote code would be CmdStan or a derivative and that we’d replace the interface provided by, for example, CmdStanR, to a local instance of CmdStan, such that we had an R interface to a remote instance of CmdStan.
There are clearly issues around how to achieve the speed-up. However, the question here is, assuming that we could get the speed-up, how would we make that accessible to the users. One option would be some kind of API interface. I’m keen to know what other options people would recommend we consider.
