Mattias Villani: Gaussian Processes with Applications
Tid: On 2018-11-28 kl 13.00 - 14.00
Föreläsare: Mattias Villani, Department of Statistics
Plats: Room B705, Department of Statistics, Stockholm University
Gaussian processes are widely used for flexible modeling of quite complex phenomena in the machine learning field. The talk gives an introduction to Gaussian process regression and classification with a view toward applications. I will also briefly discuss how Gaussian processes can be used to recast numerical optimization and integration problems as Bayesian inference problems. The methods will be illustrated in some recent applications in neuroimaging, robotics, finance and transportation.
