Non-Parametric Classification

Gaussian Process

Gaussian Processes are non-parametric models for approximating functions. They rely upon a measure of similarity between points (the kernel function) to predict the value for an unseen point from training data. The models are fully probabilistic so uncertainty bounds are baked in with the model.
