This article applies the principle of Occam's Razor to non-parametric model building of statistical data, by finding a model with the minimal number of bits, leading to an exceptionally effective regularization method for probability density estimators. The idea comes from the fact that likelihood maximization also minimizes the number of bits required to encode a dataset... (read more)
