Thanks for mentioning Turing.

In comparison to other PPLs in Julia, Turing is less a single probabilistic programming library and more a framework for probabilistic programming by providing a large collection of exchangeable libraries.

AdvancedHMC, which you mentioned, is simply one of the many projects for probabilistic machine learning that we actively develop. AdvancedHMC specifically is meant as a research platform for HMC algorithms and implements state of the art algorithms for HMC based inference. Other Turing libraries focus more towards variational approximations of static models, Bayesian learning in neural networks, and universal probabilistic programming with support for dynamic models.
