pyGPs is a Python project for Gaussian process (GP) regression and classification for machine learning.
We support two libraries: pyGP_PR and pyGP_OO. pyGP_PR is currently the default download, for pyGP_OO follow this link: https://github.com/marionmari/pyGP_OO.
pyGP_PR is a procedural implementation of GPs and follows structure and functionality of the gpml matlab implementaion by Carl Edward Rasmussen and Hannes Nickisch (Copyright (c) by Carl Edward Rasmussen and Hannes Nickisch, 2013-01-21).
pyGP_OO is an object-oriented implemetation of GP regression and classificaion additionally supporting useful routines for the practical use of GPs, such as cross validation functionalities for evaluation as well as basic routines for iterative restarts for the GP hyperparameter optimization.
- Changes to previous version:
Initial Announcement on mloss.org.
Other available revisons
Version Changelog Date 1.3.1
Changelog pyGPs v1.3.1
November 25th 2014
full inline documentation with input parameter and output specified
check for the inputs and provide diagnostic messages for some inputs
consistant naming in inline and online documentation
string representation for dnlZStruct and postStruct. Now you can do sth like:
nlZ, dnlZ, post = model.getPosterior(x,y)
instead of a python object, we provide now a more informative description.
add optimization into unit test routines. Also add checking for cholesky decomposition and checking positive-definite property of kernel matrix.
add jitter to the digonal of linear, linARD, and poly covariance for numerical stability.
fix several minor problems in unit test framework
hierachically rearranged for online documentation
add several supplementary instruction in online documentation

Changelog pyGPs v1.3
October 19th 2014
- DOC: model.fit() is now named model.getPosterior
- DOC: typo fixed: cov.LIN changed to cov.Linear
- DOC: removed cov.Periodic() in demos because its limited in 1-d data.
- API file updated accordingly
- removed unused ScalePrior attribute in most inference method
- added function jitchol, which added a small jitter(instead of doing Cholesky decomposition directly) to the diagonal when the kernel matrix is ill conditioned.
- thrown error when using periodic covariance functions for non-1d data. We also removed cov.Periodic() in demos because its limited usage.
- combined equally spaced positions of inputs as test positions as well in plot methods to get a more accurate plotting.
- rename model.fit() to model.getPosterior(), while model.optimize() stays the same. (since it is confusing for some users that the name fit() is not doing optimizing.)
