Discrete random probability measures and the exchangeable random partitions they induce are key tools for addressing a variety of estimation and prediction problems in Bayesian inference. In this talk we focus on the family of Gibbs-type priors, a recent elegant and intuitive generalization of the Dirichlet and the Pitman-Yor process priors. Several distributional properties are presented and their implications for Bayesian nonparametric inference highlighted. Illustrations in the contexts of mixture modeling, species sampling and curve estimation are provided.
