I did not discuss the mean function or hyperparameters in detail; there is GP classification (Rasmussen & Williams, 2006), inducing points for computational efficiency (Snelson & Ghahramani, 2006), and a latent variable interpretation for high-dimensional data (Lawrence, 2004), to mention a few.

Despite advances in scalable models, the inference tools used for Gaussian processes (GPs) have yet to fully capitalize on developments in computing hardware.

Given a finite set of input output training data that is generated out of a fixed (but possibly unknown) function, the framework models the unknown function as a stochastic process such that the training outputs are a finite number of jointly Gaussian random variables, whose properties can then be used to infer the statistics (the mean and variance) of the function at test values of input.

An important property of Gaussian processes is that they explicitly model uncertainty or the variance associated with an observation. A Gaussian process is a collection of random variables, any ï¬nite number of which have a joint Gaussian distribution.

In other words, Bayesian linear regression is a specific instance of a Gaussian process, and we will see that we can choose different mean and kernel functions to get different types of GPs. We introduce stochastic variational inference for Gaussian process models. The advantages of Gaussian processes are: The prediction interpolates the observations (at least for regular kernels). y = f(\mathbf{x}) + \varepsilon In Figure 222, we assumed each observation was noiselessâthat our measurements of some phenomenon were perfectâand fit it exactly.
