About: This local and parallel computation toolbox is the Octave and Matlab implementation of several localized Gaussian process regression methods: the domain decomposition method (Park et al., 2011, DDM), partial independent conditional (Snelson and Ghahramani, 2007, PIC), localized probabilistic regression (Urtasun and Darrell, 2008, LPR), and bagging for Gaussian process regression (Chen and Ren, 2009, BGP). Most of the localized regression methods can be applied for general machine learning problems although DDM is only applicable for spatial datasets. In addition, the GPLP provides two parallel computation versions of the domain decomposition method. The easiness of being parallelized is one of the advantages of the localized regression, and the two parallel implementations will provide a good guidance about how to materialize this advantage as software.Changes:
