Variational Model Selection for Sparse Gaussian Process Regression

Variational Model Selection for Sparse Gaussian Process Regression

This video was recorded at Bayesian Research Kitchen Workshop (BARK), Grasmere 2008. Model selection for sparse Gaussian process (GP) models is an important problem that involves the selection of both the inducing/active variables and the kernel parameters. We describe an auxiliary variational method for sparse GP regression that jointly learns the inducing variables and kernel parameters by minimizing the Kullback-Leibler divergence between an approximate distribution and the true posterior over the latent function values. The variational distribution is parametrized using an unconstrained distribution over inducing variables and a conditional GP prior. This framework allows us to compute a lower bound of the true log marginal likelihood which can be reliably maximized over the inducing... Show More
