About: The GPstuff toolbox is a versatile collection of Gaussian process models and computational tools required for inference. The tools include, among others, various inference methods, sparse approximations and model assessment methods.

Changes:

2014-07-22 Version 4.5

New features

  • Input dependent noise and signal variance.

    • Tolvanen, V., Jylänki, P. and Vehtari, A. (2014). Expectation Propagation for Nonstationary Heteroscedastic Gaussian Process Regression. In Proceedings of IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing, accepted for publication. Preprint http://arxiv.org/abs/1404.5443
  • Sparse stochastic variational inference model.

    • Hensman, J., Fusi, N. and Lawrence, N. D. (2013). Gaussian processes for big data. arXiv preprint http://arxiv.org/abs/1309.6835.
  • Option 'autoscale' in the gp_rnd.m to get split normal approximated samples from the posterior predictive distribution of the latent variable.

    • Geweke, J. (1989). Bayesian Inference in Econometric Models Using Monte Carlo Integration. Econometrica, 57(6):1317-1339.

    • Villani, M. and Larsson, R. (2006). The Multivariate Split Normal Distribution and Asymmetric Principal Components Analysis. Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods, 35(6):1123-1140.

Improvements

  • New unit test environment using the Matlab built-in test framework (the old Xunit package is still also supported).
  • Precomputed demo results (including the figures) are now available in the folder tests/realValues.
  • New demos demonstrating new features etc.
    • demo_epinf, demonstrating the input dependent noise and signal variance model
    • demo_svi_regression, demo_svi_classification
    • demo_modelcomparison2, demo_survival_comparison

Several minor bugfixes
