PyMC3 is based on Theano, and uses it for creating and computing the graph that comprises the probabilistic model. Given the discontinuation of support for Theano, we are exploring using alternative libraries for future major versions of PyMC. We aim to port or re-implement some of the distributions currently present in PyMC3 using the selected framework while keeping the API, output and performance consistent.
