These are similar to regular GPs, but the latent function, f, can optionally have an extra nonlinear relationship to the observations, y, in the likelihood,
</p>
<ul>
<li>
Normal GP likelihood: y ~ N(f, s^2 I_N) or for a single observation, n, y_n = f_n + e.
</li>
<li>
E/UGP likelihood: y ~ N(g(f), s^2 I_N) or for a single observation, n, y_n = g(f_n) + e.
</li>
</ul>
<p>Where g(.) is an arbitrary scalar function (maps R to R). The posterior Gaussian process parameters are learned using a variational objective with Gauss-Newton style linearization (of g) and mean finding.
