Hi all again! In last post I have published a short resume on first three chapters of Bishop’s “Pattern recognition and machine learning” book. Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (Information Science and Statistics) [ Christopher M. Bishop] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. If you have done linear algebra and probability/statistics you should be okay. You do not need much beyond the basics as the book has some excellent.

If we want to find the maximum likelihood, under the assumption of normal noise, the formula is given by:.
Then to quadratic regression. Regularization defines a kind of budget that prevents to much extreme values in the parameters. This is pr,l relevant in complex models that have great expressivity to adjust to the dataset, which means that they could easily overfit. This section deals with the problem of not being able to infer all the datapoints at the same time.
This method is sub-optimal and might not converge. The next section uses Bayesian methods that do not suffer from this problem.

The next code, when executed, produces a stand-alone html page, which was embedded here click the buttons to control the animation:. The grey lines are some candidates given by the current parameter values of the model.
This is given by the predictive distribution:. Since we bisgop more information, the predictive distribution has less uncertainty, especially in the extreme values around -1, since among the new datapoints, there are information nearby.
