Gaussian Processes and Probabilistic Models for Dimensionality Reduction


at Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany on Aug 25, 2011 [pdf]
Neil D. Lawrence, University of Sheffield



In this talk we present an overview of probabilistic approaches to dimensionality reduction and probabilistic interpretations of dimensionality reduction. We start by reviewing spectral methods and then turn to probabilistic PCA and the Gaussian process latent variable model.
