AugmentedGaussianProcesses.jl is a Julia package in development for Data Augmented Sparse Gaussian Processes. It contains a collection of models for different gaussian and non-gaussian likelihoods, which are transformed via data augmentation into conditionally conjugate likelihood allowing for extremely fast inference via block coordinate updates. There are also more options to use more traditional variational inference via quadrature or Monte Carlo integration.
The theory for the augmentation is given in the following paper : Automated Augmented Conjugate Inference for Non-conjugate Gaussian Process Models
## Multi-Ouput models
The package requires at least Julia 1.3
] and type
add AugmentedGaussianProcesses, it will install the package and all its dependencies.
A complete documentation is available in the docs. For a short start now you can use this very basic example where
X_train is a matrix
N x D where
N is the number of training points and
D is the number of dimensions and
Y_train is a vector of outputs (or matrix of independent outputs).
using AugmentedGaussianProcesses; using KernelFunctions model = SVGP(X_train, Y_train, SqExponentialKernel(), LogisticLikelihood(),AnalyticSVI(100), 64) train!(model, 100) Y_predic = predict_y(model, X_test) #For getting the label directly Y_predic_prob, Y_predic_prob_var = proba_y(model,X_test) #For getting the likelihood (and likelihood uncertainty) of predicting class 1
