Bayesian inference for Gaussian Processes

Project description

I would like to develop (and teach myself) some easy-to-start material, allowing to perform Bayesian inference for Gaussian processes (GPs) using Julia's ecosystem.

Outline:

  • What are non-parameteric models and, in particular, GPs
  • One-dimensional curve fitting simple example, i.e. given a set of pairs (x_i, y_i) how to fit f(x)=y
  • Discuss different kernels: squared exponential, Matern, linear, compositions
  • A more involved 2d example, modelling spatial data
