pyGPs is a library containing code for Gaussian Process (GP) Regression and Classification.
Here is the online documentation: [ONLINE documentation](http://www-ai.cs.uni-dortmund.de/weblab/static/api_docs/pyGPs/)
pyGPs is an object-oriented implementation of GPs. Its functionality follows roughly the gpml matlab implementation by Carl Edward Rasmussen and Hannes Nickisch (Copyright (c) by Carl Edward Rasmussen and Hannes Nickisch, 2013-01-21).
Standard GP regression and (binary) classification as well as FITC (sparse GPs) inference is implemented.
For a list of implemented covariance, mean, likelihood, and inference functions see list_of_functions.txt.
The current implementation is optimized and tested, however, the work on this library is still in progress. We appreciate any feedback.
A comprehensive introduction to functionalities and demonstrations can be found in the *doc* folder; just open /doc/build/html/index.html in your browser to get to the html documentation of the whole package.
Further, pyGPs includes implementations of
- minimize.py implemented in python by Roland Memisevic 2008, following minimize.m which is copyright (C) 1999 - 2006, Carl Edward Rasmussen
- scg.py (Copyright (c) Ian T Nabney (1996-2001))
- brentmin.py (Copyright (c) by Hannes Nickisch 2010-01-10.)
