One of the main obstacles to the routine implementation of Bayesian methods has been the absence of efficient algorithms for carrying out the computational tasks implicit in the Bayesian approach. In this paper, recent progress towards overcoming this problem is reviewed. In particular, novel numerical integration and interpolation methods, which exploit the opportunities offered by modern interactive computing and graphics facilities, are outlined and illustrated.
