learning GP hyperparameters

(1.6 hours to learn)


In order to apply Gaussian processes in practice, it is necessary to fit the hyperparameters of the model, such as the lengthscale and variance of a squared-exp kernel. Marginal likelihood is one commonly used criterion for doing so.


This concept has the prerequisites:
