Parallel model fitting in brms?


#1

Hi all,

I am trying to fit the same model to multiple datasets (as part of multiple imputation) and was wondering whether brms has an option to fit multiple models in parallel, like running multiple chains simultaneously?

Thanks,
Erik

I just implemented this feature in the dev version of brms on github. You can now use the future package for flexible parallelization in brm_multiple.
