A Bayesian nonparametric model is a Bayesian model on an infinite-dimensional parameter space. The parameter space is typically chosen as the set of all possible solutions for a given learning problem. For example, in a regression problem the parameter space can be the set of continuous functions, and in a density estimation problem the space can consist of all densities. A Bayesian nonparametric model uses only a finite subset of the available parameter dimensions to explain a finite sample of… CONTINUE READING
